Frequently Asked Questions
What is ONE BASIN – One Way!?
It is a standardized contractor safety orientation program for the oil and gas industry in North Dakota.
Why is ONE BASIN – One Way! safety first?
The ONE BASIN – One Way! Orientation curriculum is designed to raise safety awareness on over forty critical topics PLUS focus on a number of North Dakota-specific job hazards that are not covered by traditional orientation programs. Statistics indicate that more than fifty percent of ND industry safety incidences are transportation-related, ONE BASIN – One Way! orientation places particular emphasis on transportation safety awareness in our state.
Why was ONE BASIN - One Way! started?
In 2018, an estimated 32,000 contractors attended orientations for each producer 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 must only sit through an orientation one time in a given period, which means saved manhours. ND has a workforce shortage. One orientation per year provides the necessary safety awareness and reduces 1.25 million lost manhours sitting in redundant orientations.
How long is the course?
Four hours will be required to complete the safety orientation including 40+ vital safety topics. Your ONE BASIN – One Way! ID Card will allow you to work on facilities of all the producers who participate.

The ONE BASIN– One Way! program has a two-year orientation cycle. The first year is a four-hour classroom with instructor style orientation covering 40+ vital safety topics. The second year is a 30-60-minute computer-based refresher. Then the cycle repeats.
Your certifications are automatically connected to your profile upon scanning out of orientation, meaning you can go straight back to work with your badge and be able to work on locations of all the producers who participate.
