My Bio

Richard L. Winegar

Corporate Emergency Preparedness | VPP, IIPP & BEAP Specialist

With over 40-years experience as Project Director, Project Manager and/or Project Engineer with Bechtel Corporation, Parsons International, Fluor Corporation, Worley Parsons, Dyno Nobel, Ivanhoe Energy Inc., as well as with both Aramco and Saudi Aramco, I have been in charge of billion-dollar projects, both overseas and domestic. Besides building brand new facilities for major oil and chemical companies in the production of natural gas, crude oil, gas-to-liquid and nitric acid plants, I also handled the revamping, debottlenecking and modernization of refineries, gas plants, and gas booster stations.

Implementing the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) and Emergency Action Plan (EAP) were required due to the strategic location of the facilities as well as the volatility and inestimable value of the products being produced. It was necessary to prove to governmental agencies that not only their investments but their employees and visitors were all well protected (this was done through the use of the “Gap Analysis” process). Overseeing the safeguards for the companies listed above, I developed extensive plans, managed the training, implemented emergency preparedness drills, conducted in-house safety team meetings and tested employee knowledge (both verbal and written) of good safety practices in the eventuality of either acts of terrorism or accidental release of hazardous materials so that all employees and visitors understand and anticipate what is required of them prior to the occurrence of an adversarial situation. This assures good safety practices in order to ensure “ZERO HARM”.
