Accurate Safety Compliance offers our own accredited ASC IADC Rig Pass Basic Orientation.
IADC Rig Pass is a standardized safety orientation program for all oil and gas operations, whether onshore or offshore, that is independently audited and accredited.
Completion of an IADC RigPass accredited program confirms that personnel have met basic requirements defined by safety and training professionals in the drilling industry, irrespective of the rig’s location.
RigPass is an industry-developed program. It was developed and is overseen by oil and gas industry HSE professionals under the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC). The Committee RigPass includes, but is not limited to Operators, Contractors, Service Companies, and Commercial Training Providers. The committee continuously works to enhance the program by utilizing best practice for instructional design and adult learning methodology.
The course was designed to take the place of multiple Operator orientations and to give each student a general idea of life and safety issues in the oil and gas industry, upstream, downstream, and onshore or offshore.
RigPass is a globally recognized safety curriculum and is accepted wherever oil and gas operations exist. RigPass has existed for over 25 years! In addition, IADC’s accreditation programs are ISO 9001:2015-certified.
This one day 8-hour program meets API RP 75 & API RP T-1 requirements and provides a basic understanding at an awareness level of specific general safety information that an employee should know before entering a company facility and while performing their assigned work duties.
Upon successful completion of this course each student is issued a picture ID with a unique barcode and the students information is then stored in ISNetworld and IADC online databases.
Why IADC no longer carries the SafeLand endorsement?
SafeLandUSA was an Operator-led industry committee that originated as an industry representative and volunteer committee. IADC was one of its founding members. IADC was also an approved accrediting body and partner to SafeLandUSA with contributions from our Accreditation team ranging from the development of board bylaws to curriculum development.
SafeLand, Inc. is NOT a program but a board. Board members Veriforce and ETC have safety orientations, endorsed by SafeLand, Inc. (similar to IADC’s RigPass orientation). The board governance has changed since the business was registered as SafeLand, Inc. as of May 2020.
IADC’s core values remain to support our industry’s workforce with programs that are developed based on industry needs. We continue to advocate for programs that focus on safety, competency, and value for our members.
Together with direction from IADC Onshore Advisory Panel Leadership, we determined that IADC was unable to align with the new SafeLand Inc. organizational structure and would no longer participate in the development or support of SafeLand, Inc. programs.
