Safety Program


“To actively support the mission of the OIPA by providing membership Streamlined Access to Flexible HSE Education opportunities. These opportunities are designed to equip Oklahoma’s energy industry with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to both build and maintain safety-minded cultures dedicated to protecting life, limb, and property.”

SafeLandUSA training

Held monthly at the OIPA headquarters, SafeLandUSA offers safety orientation to a broad mix of oil and natural gas professionals, both new and experienced.

SafeLandUSA orientations are designed specifically to meet the safety training needs of the U.S. onshore oil and natural gas industry and eliminate the need for multiple employee orientations. All certifications are available through an online database maintained by both PEC Safety and ISNetworld, giving employers a fast and easy method for keeping track of employee certification status.

SafeLandUSA 8-hour orientation courses are designed by the Energy Training Council to meet all OSHA recommendations for "awareness" level orientation training by covering 24 topics such as blood borne pathogens, confined space awareness, electrical safety, environmental awareness, fall protection, fire safety (prevention and protection), hazard communication, hydrogen sulfide awareness, lockout/tagout and personal protective equipment. Each participant is provided a comprehensive training manual.

Red Cross First Aid Training

As a Red Cross Authorized Provider, the OIPA is able to provide Red Cross accredited training in First Aid, CPR and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) to our membership at a discounted price. This training is specifically tailored to the needs of the oil and natural gas industry here in Oklahoma, and aligns with OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs.

Hydrogen Sulfide Annual Certification Course

OSHA recommends work in hydrogen sulfide environments in the oilfield be carried out under the supervision of a “Competent Person.” To serve as a competent person, an employee must be able to both recognize specific hazards associated with an environment, and respond to those hazards appropriately.

These training sessions focus specifically on hydrogen sulfide gas environments, and give participants the knowledge of applicable standards, the ability to identify operations-specific workplace hazards, and the confidence to act in the role of a “Competent Person” on the job site.
