In recent years, oil, utility, construction and drilling companies have put safety into high gear. The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators and the International Association for Foundation Drilling, for example, introduced a certification program for drill rig operators—a notable proactive stance and the first formal instructional safety program of its kind for these industries.

This deeper commitment to training has been echoed throughout like-minded operations throughout the U.S., and eMaxx—a pioneer in risk management, safety and loss prevention insurance services—has been at the forefront. eMaxx/eRisk delivers an array of safety offerings and services, including rigpass training. As a result, the company has helped clients across the nation ultimately reduce longterm loss costs. Its suite of innovative risk management strategies has also been proven drivers of underwriting profitability.

Rigpass is widely considered a standardized essential safety orientation program for gas and oil operators worldwide. This includes onshore and offshore operations. Rigpass certification is globally recognized and is required by most drilling, utility and major contractor industries before an operator is allowed to work in the field. As far as hazard awareness is concerned, it is the gold standard of safety protocols. Whether operators complete in person classes or rigpass training online, the final exam and certificate carry the same weight. (eMaxx offers opportunities for both modalities, including rigpass online.)

Rigpass is a field-proven tool that ensures employee safety and strives to help operators do their job safer, better and more efficiently while increasing productivity and achieving zero incidents and zero injuries in the workplace. Many courses can be customized to reflect the needs of a specific industry and can be useful to new hires, as well as veteran employees. Many classes are also team taught and incorporate firsthand knowledge of the industry from a variety of expert instructors, including professionals with an average of 20+ years of experience in backgrounds such as HAZMAT, Department of Transportation, carrier safety inspection, propane and oil systems, oil and gas, construction health and safety and fire services.

When clients partner with eMaxx training service providers, they also have the benefit of working one-on-one with a state-of-the-art tech-enabled company that uses immersive technologies to generate realistic environments and situations to help participants get as close as possible to first-hand experience.
