As more rigs go back to work, we wanted to make sure you’re heading out to the field with your best (safety) foot forward. By sharing these safety ideas with your crews, you’re ensuring there is not one HSE representative on the rig, but five on each and every crew.

This week on the blog, a look at Rig 46’s evening views at its current location near Hudson’s Hope, British Columbia, Canada. The crews out there wouldn’t trade these “office views” for anything.
