Buckle Up

IOGP is asking you to BUCKLE UP!

IOGP is committed to improving safety in the oil and gas industry. In 2015 our Members reported that 7 individuals lost their lives in land transportation-related incidents. Reading the narratives for those fatal events you can see that it was likely that not wearing a seatbelt was a factor.

Wearing a seat belt does not prevent crashes, but it does prevent fatalities and serious injuries. So BUCKLE UP!

Our goal is to eliminate fatal incidents where not wearing a seat belt was a factor. You and your company can help get us there.
