There’s a lot of time and energy that goes into the contractor qualification process. Eliminating this struggle for hiring companies was the driving idea behind ISNetworld. In 2001 ISNetworld began verifying contractors’ qualifications with regard to health and safety, insurance, regulatory compliance and quality. Now it is an industry standard for oil and gas (among others), and as of 2016 they’ve opened their 6th office world-wide in Auckland, New Zealand and have more than 60,000 contractor subscribers.
In such a fast moving industry as oil and gas, getting through the qualification process can feel like a daunting task especially for small businesses, which are looking to break into the field. One of the boxes that is relatively simple to check off your list is safety orientation training. SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf training meet the ISNetworld standards for health and safety compliance training.
Two of the most sought after certifications are PEC Basic Orientation- SafeGulf/SafeLandUSA and PEC Core Compliance-SafeGulf/SafeLandUSA safety training.
The PEC Basic Orientation course was developed to replace the multitude of individual operator orientations, setting industry-wide standards and streamlining the onboarding process for new hires. This helped reduce hiring costs to oil and gas employers, and ensure the quality of safety training for employees.
This safety awareness course meets API RP 75 & API RP T-1 requirements. It provides a basic understanding of general health safety information for employees before they report to an oilfield operator’s facility and begin work.
The PEC Core Compliance safety training program combines OSHA and BOEMRE (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement) regulations into one safety compliance training and certification. This course is an in depth program that covers twenty of the most important safety topics in the oil and gas field.
PEC Basic Orientation and PEC Core Compliance are accepted by most major oil and gas operators in the United States, Canada and Qatar.
Here is a listing of PEC Basic Orientation-SafeGulf/SafeLandUSA classes with open enrollment. PEC Core Compliance-SafeGulf/ SafeLandUSA open enrollment classes can be found here.
