SafeGulf is a volunteer organization, comprised of operating companies, industry associations, and educators with the purpose of having a standardized orientation which sets minimum requirements for the US Offshore E&P Industry.
In the Oil and Gas Industry, operators share a common contract workforce. After years of requiring contractors to complete very similar but separate 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. By 2004, SafeGulf was developed, agreed upon, and ready for implementation by the SafeGulf Advisory Group (SGAG).
PEC Safety’s Role
PEC Safety is one of three accrediting organizations involved in SafeGulf. Our Basic Orientation (8 hour) and Core Compliance (24 hour) were the first courses in the industry to be accredited by SafeGulf. Students that received SafeGulf through PEC Safety have their records validated and entered into PEC’s Training Tracker. Students, employees, and customers can verify an individual’s SafeGulf status through our free service, PECCard.com.
