RP-67 Oilfield Explosives Safety - Seminar

Owen Oil Tools now offers a one-day seminar entitled “Introduction To Oilfield Explosive Safety” This seminar is based on the API RP-67 (Recommended Practices for Oilfield Explosive Safety).

The API RP-67 was developed to aid both operating and service companies in establishing explosive safety guidelines for their own operations. There are approximately 5 accidents involving explosives in our industry each year. Most, if not all of these are related to human error. It is important not only that these guidelines exist, but rather that they are followed.

This seminar is intended for everyone in the oil industry who may come in contact with or who will be in the near vicinity of explosives at the well site; from the operating company engineer or rig foreman to the experienced service company explosive user. Successful completion of the seminar does not certify that an individual is ready for the shooting compartment, but it does lay the groundwork and is a critical introduction. Everyone attending the class leaves understanding the possible ramifications of NOT following procedures. Certification that an individual can and will work safely with explosives is the responsibility of the various employers who can observe that individual performing the various tasks over a period of time.
