In 2007 a small group of industry safety professionals met and decided to found our council as a way to ensure small contractors could find affordable training options to meet the ever-increasing training requirements within the industry. Our initial meetings were hald at a restaurant in Platteville. As our council grew our mission expanded to include holding monthly meetings with different safety presentations to benefit everyone in the industry.
In 2012 we joined the National STEPS Network of safety organizations in the Oil & Gas Industry. By networking with other councils and groups we are able to ensure that information on relevant safety issues, emerging technologies an industry best safety practices is shared with everyone.
OUR MISSION TODAY
We strive to provide relevant safety information and solutions for the industry. From operators to service companies, our meeting attendees will find networking opportunities with other industry professionals, regulatory information, safety solutions for our job sites, new technology to assist in safety, and much more. Our meetings are an excellent forum for open discussion on current, relevant safety issues for OSHA, DOT, emergency response, and much more
Looking into the future of our council and our industry we continue to develop new ways to share information and continue to make our industry strive for safety excellence. We do hope you will join us! Safety is everyone's responsibility
