NORM Awareness in the Oil and Gas Industry - SafetySkills

NORM can build up in pipelines and on equipment and high concentrations can pose a significant health hazard when they aren’t properly managed.NORM can be enhanced by human activity, such as oil and gas extraction, to become technologically enhanced NORM (TENORM), which can increase workers’ potential for exposure.Fortunately, oil and gas employers can help
