West Virginia University Safety and Health Extension, working in collaboration with Pierpont Technical and Community College, recently offered Occupational Safety and Health Administration Education Center courses to those interested in working in oil and gas.

Students can take courses that track toward a certified safety specialist certification, as well as receive OSHA certificates and industry-specific certifications. WVU Safety and Health Extension OSHA Education Center adjunct instructor Tiffany Rice noted that those who take the classes may have a competing edge in the job market.

“Our oil and gas safety and health certification program really works by giving students a total view of the industry and what safety and health hazards occur on the job site. Students will receive training in management techniques, OSHA regulations, recordkeeping, incident investigation and many other topics as part of the curriculum,” said Rice.

“And that’s invaluable on so many levels—the employer knows they’re getting a quality worker, the worker has confidence to do the job correctly and the industry overall can operate more safely.”

Rice went on to add that oil and gas safety courses are also being offered to the public, as well as employers looking to provide additional training opportunities for their employees.
