Title: On-site health and safety precautions
Text: Exploration of Coal Bed Methane: Health and Safety: "...the importance of car-pooling to help minimize construction traffic and reduce the potential for vehicular accidents. Training, including defensive driving courses, has also been shown to help reduce work related traffic accidents.... CBM development is occurring that notification of the local fire department and having onsite fire protection services often helps alleviate some of the concern.... A Health and Safety Plan allows employees to determine site-specific training requirements, activity specific Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) requirements, and other issues pertinent to CBM activities."
