A new package of regulations governing workers’ safety in the oil and gas sector in Guyana is being crafted, said the country's occupational safety and health consultant at the Ministry of Social Protection, Gwyneth King. The small rainforest country nestled between Venezuela and Suriname has recently struck oil—a lot of it. With this newfound vast potential comes concern about developing the resources sustainably and with proper consideration for the country’s people and environment. The program aims to advance Guyana’s sustainable economy through investments in education, research, sustainable management, and conservation of the country’s vast ecosystems. Proforma Safety International announced a partnership with the Guyanese agency Lomak Energy Services to support the oil and gas sector with safety consulting services.
