The most important part of any business in the oilfield is the people that do the work. No place is this truer than when you consider the impact your employees have on the Health, Safety and Environmental impact of your operations.
If you work in the upstream side of the oil and gas industry, then you probably know RigZone. Mark and Patrick had the opportunity to speak with Valarie Jones on of RigZone’s senior editors about an industry survey they conducted about how oilfield workers (past and present) view the industry at the bottom of this downturn.
Not only will companies face a hiring challenge during the rebound of the upstream oil and gas sector, but they will also be faced with a huge amount of new employees needing training on safety procedures to keep operations running smoothly.

Here are all of the upcoming events we will be attending:
- IADC Human Factors Conference & Exhibition: (October 17 – 18) Recent events have triggered a growing awareness of the human contribution to catastrophic and process safety events. As other industries have proven, if the drilling industry can make a concerted effort to understand human factors and integrate these concepts into training and operations, significant value can be gained in terms of safety performance. The IADC Human Factors Conference & Exhibition will seek to examine the innovations that are shaping the future of drilling as it strives to merge rapidly advancing technologies with an understanding of human nature and form.
