SAFETY AND SAVINGS
Many producers require contractors to attend company-developed orientation every year. In 2018, an estimated 32,000 contractors attended orientations for the 28 producers who hired them. Many contractors sat through the same information 4-8 times during the year. By standardizing the orientation curriculum across the Basin, contractors only have to sit through one orientation which means they save manhours. And, this also means employees are receiving comprehensive and consistent training for several vendors across the board.
