SafeLandUSA is a volunteer organization comprised of major and independent operating companies, industry associations, and educators with the purpose of developing a standardized orientation which sets minimum requirements for the US Onshore E&P Industry.

SafeWorld is an Authorized Provider of PEC Safety courses. The facilities we use are audited to make sure they meet PEC’s and SafeLandUSA’s requirements and all training is consistent with their curricula.


In the oil and gas industry, operators share a common contractor workforce. After years of requiring contractors to complete separate but very similar safety orientations for each operator, a group of operators came together to create a standard safety orientation that would be accepted by each of them, thus saving time and resources. In 2005, the SafeLandUSA Advisory Group (SLAG) was formed to develop and implement the SafeLandUSA Orientation. The popularity of SafeLandUSA as the preferred orientation for the onshore oil & gas industry continues to increase yearly.


  1. Orientation designed specifically for the US Onshore E&P Industry
  2. Consistent EH&S orientation which is industry recognized and widely accepted
  3. Orientation remains with employee throughout career
  4. Quality assurance through an audit program and oversight committee
  5. Eliminates redundancy of multiple orientations


Onshore exploration and production contractors with 25 employees or less that use SafeLandUSA have a 4.25x lower Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) versus contractors of the same size that do not use SafeLandUSA.

All onshore exploration and production contractors that use SafeLandUSA have a 2.11x lower Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) on average versus contractors that do not use SafeLandUSA.


PEC Safety is one of three accrediting organizations involved in SafeLandUSA. Our Basic Orientation (8 hour) and Core Compliance (24 hour) were the first courses in the industry to be accredited by SafeLandUSA. PEC Safety houses the industry database for SafeLandUSA.
