The International Association of Drilling Contractors, IADC, is holding its safety conference in Houston this week. The event is scheduled for Feb 18 – 19, 2020, at the OMNI Houston Hotel Westside. The conference is filled with great speakers and exhibitors.
- Chemical Safety Board
- Safety via automation
- Well control knowledge retention
- Safety leadership
- Fitness and Ergonomics
One of the things that caught my ear at this event is the concern that some field workers may not be fit enough to do the work. The issue is previous injuries. Another concern is high blood pressure. Insurance and medical expenses are big areas of attention, especially if a worker is already injured when hired and then claims it happened on the job.
This conference comes around every year. For more on this event, please see the website: https://www.iadc.org/event/2020-iadc-health-safety-environment-training-conference-exhibition/#program
