Athens Group Expands the Role of Chief Safety Officer

Athens Group has expanded the role of the Chief Safety Officer, Don Shafer, to include not only safety, but also security, health and environment. The increased hacking and malware being seen on oil and gas assets necessitated the emphasis on "Security." Athens Group's new BOP and Rig Inspection services include comprehensive security checklists. These inspections, along with 3rd-party Hardware in the Loop (HIL) Verification services require a company-wide focus on security. Don Shafer, now the Chief Safety, Security, Health and Environment Officer, is an Athens Group co-founder and the company's first Technical Fellow.
