PEC Basic Orientation
The PEC Basic Orientation includes both SafeGulf and SafeLand training and was designed to take the place of multiple Operator orientations and to give each student a general idea of life and safety issues in the oil and gas industry, upstream, downstream, onshore or offshore. This one-day (8-10 hours) program meets API RP 75 & API RP T-1 requirements and provides a basic understanding, which an employee should be aware of, before entering an Operator facility and while performing their assigned work duties.
PEC Core Compliance
PEC Core Compliance, is a standardized program covering the health, safety and environmental training most requested by oil and gas Operators and other host employers. Core Compliance is instructor-led training that, in addition to being SafetLand and SafeGulf accredited, provides training level certificates beyond the awareness level for over 30 selected topics. The classroom presentation is designed to build on common content in a high intensity 3-day (24 hours) format.
PEC Core Compliance Refresher
The PEC Core Compliance standardized refresher program brings students up-to-date on their training certifications initially obtained through PEC Core Compliance. When administered annually, this one-day (8 hour) program will ensure workers are compliant with the training requirements on all health, safety and environmental topics covered in the 3-day (24 hours) Core Compliance training course.
PEC Globally Harmonized System
Globally Harmonized System/Hazard Communication (GHS) program covers the elements that address the new OSHA training requirements for GHS. Recognizing that many workers may have not had adequate training in Hazard Communication or at least have not had recent training, the course will also provide basic/refresher training in the requirements of the Hazard Communication regulations.
PEC Job Safety Analysis
It is common for contract personnel, as well as Operator personnel, to be required to perform Job Safety Analysis (JSA) at worksites, but there is increasing concern at the quality of those JSAs. Many Operators now require that their personnel and contractors undergo JSA training. It is expected that the new revisions to the Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) regulations will make JSA training mandatory for all offshore personnel. The Job Safety Analysis (JSA) course is based on a combination of classroom training and exercises aimed at teaching personnel how to work as a team in creating JSAs, watching out for each other’s safety and stopping work when necessary.
Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness
Hydrogen sulfide gas is a common hazard in the oil and gas industry.Upon completion of this learning event, employees will demonstrate knowledge of the sources of hydrogen sulfide, its physical and chemical properties and effects on the body, hydrogen sulfide exposure controls and exposure response. This course is intended to assist the employer in meeting the requirements of OSHA.
Hydrogen Sulfide Instructor
This course is intended to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and techniques to develop and provide site-specific, technical skill-level Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) training programs to the petroleum industry, utilities, research and development, laboratories, transportation, paper/pulp/food processing, chemical manufacturing and other companies with H2S at their facilities. Participants will receive and discuss the ANSI/ASSE Z390.1-2006 standard, ‘Accepted Practices for Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Training Programs.’ At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to explain the hazards associated with H2S, describe how the federal and state H2S regulatory standards and other established industry criteria link together to reduce the potential of exposure and risks involved with H2S, and develop an effective training program for their specific sites.
At the completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
- Explain how the EMS system works and the citizen responder’s role in the EMS system;
- Describe what happens in the body if one or more body system fail to function properly;
- Identify and care for choking and other breathing emergencies;
- Define the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and injury, and describe how to control them;
- Recognize the signals of a possible heart attack, and describe how to care for someone who is experiencing persistent chest pain;
- Identify the signals of cardiac arrest, and demonstrate how to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until advanced emergency medical care arrives;
- Identify life-threatening bleeding, and demonstrate how to control it;
- Identify the signals of shock, and describe how to minimize the effects of shock;
- Identify the signals of various soft tissue and musculoskeletal injuries, and demonstrate how to care for them;
- Identify the signals of medical emergencies, including poisoning and heat and cold emergencies, and describe both general and specific care for medical emergencies;
- Describe when and how to move a victim in an emergency situation;
- Know how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Safe Work Culture
As a result of the two-day training program, participants will learn how to build and maintain a functional Safe Work Culture within their organization. This will be accomplished through a broad range of adult learning approaches, skills and participative class involvement. As part of the ongoing program, participants will have emphasized the following OSHA standards: Personal Protective Equipment, Material handling, Tools and Equipment, Fire Protection/Prevention and General Safety requirements.
Following the introduction, the remainder of the time will involve outlining for the participants the latest developments in behavioral-based safety. The course is designed to be highly interactive with consistent employee participation. Participants will learn how to target unsafe behaviors by learning to observe a job-specific work task being performed by workers, from which observational data is be collected. Participant will then learn to provide feedback based on the observation conducted. All participants will be trained in the proper techniques for using graphs and spreadsheets for evaluative purposes as a means of developing a systematic plan of improvement intervention. Time will be spent on discussing and training participants on how to utilize and focus the information derived in order to useful provide feedback to management as a means of gaining commitment to a Safe Work Culture.
Participants will be involved in a range of various activities including but not limited to: work group problems, role-playing exercises, and the design, development and proposed implementation of a selected internal safety program. Emphasis will be placed on promoting individual accountability toward developing a Safety Work Culture (SWC) involving all employees as opposed to a top-down safety programs. At the conclusion of the program, participants will undertake a final comprehensive test to assess their understanding and application of the information provided.
