Industry editorial: Connecting and customising industrial safety solutions with oil and gas industry operators

Our editorial, “Connecting and customising industrial safety solutions with oil and gas operators”, appeared in the Energy Publications – Oil & Gas Australia | APPEA Conference and Exhibition edition.

It talks about how we work with our global manufacturing partners to deliver industrial safety solutions to our customers.

It was in both the online and hard copy editions, and we’ve reproduced it here:

Safety considerations in the oil and gas industry are as diverse as they are numerous, and they go beyond being a box-ticking exercise.

And while some low-level safety management involves implementing and adhering to standard protocols and procedures, higher level safety management demands a more customised approach and focus on engineered controls.

Perth-based industrial safety supplier Teksal Safety offers a link between the safety consideration and the right solution.

While the company supplies premium industrial safety equipment, controls and systems for diverse projects throughout Australia in the oil & gas, mining and industrial sectors, it works closely with customers and its manufacturing partners to provide tailored solutions.

Managing Director Joe Hischar says, “We’re not just about selling products; we strive to offer the optimal solution for a particular scenario. To achieve this, we work with our customers and manufacturing partners to develop custom solutions for a range of safety scenarios, primarily in the oil and gas industry.”

“Ultimately, we want to deliver the right technical solutions and advice to minimise risk to our customers’ people, their plant and their process.”

With offices and teams in Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide, Teksal Safety services projects nationally, and represents global manufacturers, including Dropsafe, Brady, Fortress Interlocks, Zone Safety Systems, Crowcon, Oseco-Elfab, Pilz and Sofis.
