Safety and Training
Every O-Tex manager and employee makes a safe working environment their number one priority – no matter if it is in the office, on the road or on a client location. We are not only concerned for our own health and safety, but strive to safeguard the health and safety of others who work on the locations we serve and travel down the roads we share.
Applicants must pass a driver’s test and receive driver training as a standard part of O-Tex employment. Employees who operate heavy and light vehicles are also required to participate in a continuous driver training program through the Texas Driving Experience at Texas Motor Speedway. The Texas Driving Experience puts participants through almost every possible scenario an O-Tex driver may encounter on the road. In addition to the ongoing training, all of the O-Tex company vehicles and rolling equipment are armed with real-time tracking and speed monitoring devices.
As members of ISNET World and PEC Premier, O-Tex maintains the highest standards of safety and is deeply dedicated to continuously improving safety scores and procedures. O-Tex certified safety professionals and management have also created programs that strictly adhere to all industry guidelines for pre-screening of applicants and random drug and alcohol tests.
Our training facility is located in Duncan, OK, and we provide basic through advanced cementing knowledge, skills testing and equipment operations. Our goal is to train employees with certified industry professionals so that they are ready to perform their assigned duties before starting out on the road or arriving at a client location. Every O-Tex employee is current with H2S and any other certifications required by our clients before they arrive for service.
On every location that O-Tex services, it is standard operating practice to conduct several safety meetings before, during and after a job is completed. The client representative will be involved in a minimum of two safety meetings while O-Tex is on location.
This information is just an overview of how O-Tex implements training programs and practices to ensure the health and safety of everyone who works for and with us. If you would like more specific information regarding our policies and procedures, please contact your O-Tex representative for more details.
