Description

Motor vehicle crashes have historically been the greatest common cause of death and serious injury in the oil and gas industry. This event will focus on the successes and challenges of implementing safe driving programs across the industry.  We are pleased to present the perspectives of two operators and one service company. Each panelist will provide a ten minute overview of their experiences, followed by an interactive question and answer session. We look forward to a lively exchange of ideas.
