Colden uses current regulations provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and Department of Environmental Protection to assess and quantify exposure to oil and gas well site emissions.  Silica sand and chemicals used during the hydraulic fracturing process can potentially expose personnel.  Our professionals have the tools necessary to create best-in-practice health and safety programs to optimize workers' productivity and reduce health and safety risks in the oil and gas extraction industry.
