New Safety Training Center

Posted: Updated:

Oil field workers put in long hours, and most of them are well compensated for it.

     However, there is a certain amount of injury that comes along with working in the patch.

     To help prevent injuries safety companies have been moving to Williston, including one that opened earlier today.

 

Falck Safety Services is in 15 countries, and has 38 locations, including 7 here in the U.S. Their newest office is in Williston.. It's northbound on Highway 2, and offers a number of different courses.

    "OSHA 10, H2NS confined space. We have a portfolio of over 130 different safety courses," said Falck Safety Services CEO Brian Lecompte.

 

Lecompte says they will let the industry dictate what courses they bring to the Bakken. Falck has four classrooms in their building, and they can be used to train almost anyone working in the oil patch.

 

     "Everything from trucking companies, drilling, production. You name it, any support service construction, they will need some kind of training for the oil field," added Lecompte.

 

The company can also help the oil field by sending people to site locations for short term jobs.

 

     "We can also provide safety personal and emergency medical personal. Again everything we do is safety services." Lecompte added.

 

On the first floor of the building, Falck is opening a retail shop.

 

     "We also provide FRCs, which is fire retardant clothing. Safety equipment, any type of ppe, hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, steel toes, bags, respirators, fall protection," added Lecompte.

 

Falck Safety Services trains 500-600 employees everyday across the United States.
