The PEC Basic Orientation Safety Awareness Course includes both SafeGulf and SafeLandUSA. PEC Basic was designed to take the place of multiple operator orientations and to give each student a general idea of safety issues in the oil and gas industry, upstream, downstream, onshore or offshore. This one day program meets API RP 75 and API RP T-1 requirements and provides a basic understanding of certain general safety information that an employee should know before entering a company facility and while performing their assigned work duties. Over 25 of the leading oil and gas operators accept this orientation as it meets their requirements.
Upon successful completion of course, each student is issued a picture ID with a unique barcode. The student information is then stored in an online database. SafeLandUSA is a volunteer organization comprised of major and independent operating companies, industry associations, and educators with the purpose of developing a standardized orientation which sets minimum requirements for the US Onshore E&P Industry. Many participating operators require employees to complete the SafeLandUSA training program prior to working on location. In the Oil and Gas Industry, Operators share a common Contractor workforce. After years of requiring contractors to complete separate but very similar safety orientations for each Operator, a group of Operators came together to create a standard safety orientation that would be accepted by each of them, thus saving time and resources.
