PEC Basic Orientation (SafeLand)

This safety awareness course 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 program meets API RP 75 & API RP T-1 requirements and provides a basic understanding at an awareness level of certain general safety information that an employee should know before entering a company facility and while performing their assigned work duties.

More than 25 of the leading oil and gas operators accept this orientation as it meets their requirements. Upon successful completion of this course, each student is issued a picture ID with a unique barcode. The student information is then stored in an online database. This orientation has become the standard program for the industry and certifies a student at awareness level.

This course will cover the following topics:

  • SafeLand Certification
  • Confined Space
  • Rigging
  • Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)
  • Lockout/Tagout
  • Fall Protection
  • Hazmat
  • Hazardous Communications
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Hearing Conservation
  • Emergency Response
  • Process Safety Management
  • Welding Safety
  • Defensive Driving
  • Hazwoper
  • Fire Protection
  • Medical Records
  • Forklift Safety
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Electrical Safety
  • Terrorism Response Awareness Program (TRAP)
  • Back Safety
  • Alcohol and substance abuse awareness

SafeGulf

Under SafeGulf, all contractors must fulfill the SafeGulf minimum HSE training requirements prior to working on operator premises in the Gulf of Mexico. BP, Chevron, Shell and ExxonMobil consider the new requirements a step in the right direction to ensure a level playing field and a standard program for quality HSE training and knowledge retention of those contractor personnel that perform work on operator property.

The Key elements are:

  • All contractors must provide minimum training/orientation as described under SafeGulf – additional specialized skills training may be necessary based on the services your company provides.
  • All contractor personnel must be listed in the SafeGulf Database (administered by ISNetworld) prior to working on operator premises starting May 1, 2006.

PEC Core Compliance

The PEC Core Compliance program brings together the health, safety and environmental training certifications (OSHA and BOEMRE) most requested by oilfield operators and other host employers. PEC Core Compliance is SafeGulf and SafeLand accredited and is accepted by every major and most mid-major operators in the USA, Canada and Qatar.

This in depth training program will ensure your employees are compliant with your customers’, OSHA and BOEMRE (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement) safety training requirements. Material presentation is structured to build on common content in a high intensity three day format. The instructor led interactive training will certify you in training levels beyond awareness level.

Each student receives documentation of completion in the form of a PEC picture ID and a certificate of completion. The student’s information will be entered into the PEC Training Tracker database. This documentation is available via the internet through the PEC Training Tracker site. The training you will receive are as follows:

  • SafeGulf Certification

CPR: Cardiopulmunary Resusitation

An emergency procedure which is performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person in cardiac arrest.

CPR involves chest compressions at least 5 cm deep and at a rate of at least 100 per minute in an effort to create artificial circulation by manually pumping blood through the heart. In addition, the rescuer may provide breaths by either exhaling into the subject’s mouth or utilizing a device that pushes air into the subject’s lungs. This process of externally providing ventilation is termed artificial respiration. Current recommendations place emphasis on high-quality chest compressions over artificial respiration; a simplified CPR method involving chest compressions only is recommended for untrained rescuers.

The Walzel course offers heart saving solutions for:

  • -The General Public
  • -Hotels
  • -Law Enforcement
  • -Corporate
  • -Daycare Facilities and Schools

CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart; its main purpose is to restore partial flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart. The objective is to delay tissue death and to extend the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage. Administration of an electric shock to the subject’s heart, termed defibrillation, is usually needed in order to restore a viable or “perfusing” heart rhythm. Take a look at what we can offer your company in terms of saving lives with an AED.

AED: Automated External Defibillator

AED

An automated external defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

The Walzel course offers heart saving solutions for:

  • -The General Public
  • -Hotels
  • -Law Enforcement
  • -Corporate
  • -Daycare Facilities and Schools

AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in our First Aid/CPR course.

Each state has specific requirements for establishing an AED program. These requirements typically cover obtaining an AED, training, and medical oversight. For information about the laws in your state, visit the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The Federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act of 2000 [ pdf 92.0KB ] provides additional Good Samaritan protection against liability for properly trained lay rescuers and acquirers of AEDs.

First Aid Courses

First Aid Kit

Keeping your co-workers, friends, family and children safe is always a top priority. First aid is the initial care provided for an illness or injury. It is typically performed by a layperson until professional medical treatment can be performed. Some superficial or minor injuries may require no further treatment after first aid care is given. First aid consists of simple techniques that an individual can perform with little equipment.

Let Walzel Teach you and your employees the ins-and-outs of First Aid so that your fellow employees and loved ones are in safe and trained hands.We use the most recent CPR Guidelines and First Aid training techniques to help students retain important skills longer.
