Your connection to Wellsite Report
In 2016, OSHA shared their Top 10 serious and willful violations. Within those Top 10 categories were over 35,000 violations – yikes. When an OSHA violation is determined to be a Willful Violation (considered intentional violations, committed without regard for employee safety), a company can face up to $70,000. For one fine – and that doesn’t take into account what happens if an employee dies.
Yes, believe it or not, companies do get fined for Willful Violations. This not only hurts their pocket, but it hurts their employees, morale, and public opinion. When it’s time to hire, employees will check a company’s history and if they see a company has a history of violations, it makes them less inclined to apply. A company’s history can hurt their ability to hire the best candidate. So then the company has to ask: why spend money paying OSHA and still not being safe when you can pay a lot less money and also be safe? This is a no-brainer. You need Wellsite Report.
Beyond wanting employees to go home uninjured, a safe workplace is a cost-effective workplace. Making the decision to prioritize safety on your oil rig, wellsite, manufacturing facility, or construction zone can save you hundreds of thousands — of dollars. When management takes safety seriously, employees follow suit. That’s what Wellsite Report does for you.

Despite the greater emphasis placed on safety and mitigation procedures, serious incidents continue to plague the oil and gas industry. While major international players can absorb financial losses resulting from multiple breakdowns, structural and environmental damage, and litigation, just one incident of incorrect operation or equipment failure can put an enterprising small oil or gas […]
Jodi Rell, who served as the 87th governor of Connecticut, said, “At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.” How very true. Yet while the goals may be simple, the means to achieve them can be complex and costly. The oil and gas industries require multiple insurances: general liability, […]
In a previous blog, we discussed pipeline safety and the main causes of pipeline leaks. While it did cite some statistics about spill incidents affecting U.S. waterways, the article focused more on leaks occurring at overland pipelines. Today’s focus is on offshore spills, specifically along the southern California coastline. What we know so far […]
