Bureau Posts Vacancy Announcement in Nationwide Search

WASHINGTON – The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) today announced it is seeking to fill a senior position in the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), one of the two agencies that will replace the former Minerals Management Service on Oct. 1, 2011. The position is being filled now to ensure a smooth transition.

This position will serve as the Chief of the Accident Investigation Board, and will be located in the bureau’s office in Herndon, Va. The individual selected for the position will be responsible for directing national and international programs for investigating accidents, compiling and evaluating incident data, issuing Safety Alerts and publishing summary reports on Outer Continental Shelf accidents and incidents.

“This position is extraordinarily important,” BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich said. “We are making every effort to enhance safety and reduce the risk of accidents, but offshore energy exploration and development operations will never be completely risk-free. It is imperative that we have the right person leading a team of investigators that will help determine the root causes and contributing factors of accidents. We need to conduct sound investigations, and build on the knowledge obtained in those investigations, so we can learn from them and continuously improve operational and environmental safety.”

Responsibilities for the position include recommending new regulations to prevent accidents from recurring, recommending research projects to mitigate failures leading to accidents, recommending changes in inspection and enforcement practices based on investigative findings, overseeing safety management systems audits and ensuring regulatory compliance.
