Take the One Day SafeLandUSA 2021 Basic Orientation and Get to Work Immediately!

PEC Learn Basic Orientation explains the hazards that workers may encounter in the oil and gas industry along with the various practices employed to mitigate those hazards. This SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf accredited one-day safety orientation also meets API RP 75 and API RP T-1 requirements. Students will also gain a clear understanding of their rights under OSHA and how those rights apply to their workplace.

In the days before SafeLand, the oil and gas industry would have to pull untrained workers and send them directly to the rig site. It was often the case that new hires would go straight to work with very little training if any. The phenomenon of drinking from a firehose has given the oil and gas industry a reputation of being both challenging and dangerous. While on the job training will always be important in the oilfield, pre-job oil and gas training is becoming more and more important and safety records reflect those efforts.


SafeLandUSA is the most widely-accepted safety orientation adopted by the US Onshore Exploration and Production Industry. Hundreds of companies across the US depend on and require SafeLandUSA to ensure their constantly-changing contractor workforce is prepared for the high-hazard functions present in Industry. Since its inception in 2010, SafeLandUSA has been delivered to over 1.4 million workers. Veriforce is a proud accredited training provider – we include SafeLandUSA in all of our safety orientations including SafeLandUSA 2021 Basic Orientation, Basic Pipeline, and Core Compliance.

SafeLand is a non-profit organization comprised of major and independent operating companies, contractors, industry associations, and educators to promote SafeLandUSA, a standardized safety orientation for workers in the US Onshore Exploration and Production Industry.
