Forklift accidents are so common, they seem nearly routine. In the oilfield, these accidents are likely to be especially severe, due to oversized, heavy or awkward loads such as drill pipe, rough terrain, and severe operating conditions. That’s why you need to do everything you can to ensure the safety of your operators and the whole crew.
This program focuses on the best practices for common oilfield jobs, such as lifting and moving drill pipe and pallets of chemicals or mud. It also includes segments on safe fueling operations and correct procedures for avoiding or minimizing injury in case of an accident.
