Frequently Asked Questions

What Is PEC Training and What Does It Cover?

Veriforce Petroleum Education Council (PEC) safety training is an accredited safety orientation and training program designed for workers in facilities for the exploration and production (E&P) of oil and gas. This one-day course can be conducted in person or through SafeLand training online. 

SafeLand PEC training provides an overview of general safety information workers must know before working in an E&P facility. The course covers all the workplace hazards that come with their assigned work duties and the best safety practices to mitigate risks. 

Some of the key topics include:

  • International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) Life-Saving Rules and how workers can prevent serious injuries and fatalities
  • Safety culture and general safety in the workplace
  • Hazard control
  • Wearing and using personal protective equipment
  • Emergency action plans
  • Environmental and industrial hygiene

PEC SafeLand training students must pass their exams to complete the course. After passing the program, they will receive their PEC ID card to prove they have met the course requirements. 

What Are the Reasons for Needing PEC Cards?

Those that want to work in the E&P sector of the oil and gas industry must undergo PEC SafeLand training. Oil and gas operators require E&P workers to pass PEC SafeLand training before entering their facility and can verify prospective employees’ PEC cards online. Receiving PEC training benefits both you and your employer by:

  • Regulation and Work Compliance: Acquiring SafeLand Certification is a safety regulation that companies must comply with. Those wishing to work in E&P facilities must have undergone and passed the PEC course.
  • Avoid Injuries and Liabilities: Companies that don’t practice legal compliance with PEC-certified workers can incur potential liability cases. Additionally, workers can reduce the risk of sustaining injuries or putting other employees at risk during operations.
  • Meet Certification Requirements: Over 25 of the top oil and gas organizations accept PEC SafeLand training certification as it meets or exceeds their requirements. This has become the industry standard for workers in the E&P sector. 

What Can You Do With a SafeLand Certification?

This one-day program was developed by PEC and Veriforce, a supply chain risk management company. It is accredited by organizations such as SafeGulf and SafeLandUSA. It also meets the safety standards of OSHA and most major and mid-major operators in the United States and other international areas.

Individuals who want to work in E&P must have a PEC ID. If you wish to apply for a job in the oil industry for roles involving extraction, you must provide a valid PEC ID before you can operate in an E&P facility. 

What Are Some of the Hazards Discussed in the Course?

PEC training uses a standardized safety learning program. Some of the hazards that could be discussed during the course include:

  • Hazardous materials
  • Falls
  • Fire hazards
  • Hazard identification, communication, and waste operations
  • Offshore hazards
  • Respiratory hazards

The training program will cover all the potential hazards in the workplace and the best way to mitigate these incidents.
