The PEC Basic Orientation safety awareness course includes both SafeGulf and SafeLandUSA and has become the standard safety orientation for the oil and gas industry. PEC Basic 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 orientation level of certain general safety information that an employee should know before entering a company facility and while performing their assigned work duties.

“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.”
