API WorkSafe

WORK HARD. WORK SMART. WORK SAFE.

With web-based safety training for E&P onshore operators, Crude Oil by Rail operators, Class A, B and C operators, and service station contractors, API WorkSafe proves that when we all work together to improve safety, everybody works safe.

API has a way for operators to make sure their workers and contractors have been trained to industry safety standards. Workers and contractors who participate may gain a competitive edge. It’s called API WorkSafe™. The first program offered by API WorkSafe™ is a Service Station Contractor Safety qualification program that identifies contractor personnel who have passed a standardized examination covering the latest service station industry safety practices.

E&P Onshore Program: The E&P Onshore Operations Safety Program provides training on key safety issues found at onshore job sites and includes an examination covering industry safety practices. This program is based on API's E&P Onshore Operations Safety Handbook, and provides awareness-level training on key safety issues found at onshore E&P job sites.

Crude by Rail: The Crude by Rail program provides training on four topics to help train personnel in employing best practices for transporting crude oil by rail, as presented in API RP 3000 Classifying and Loading of Crude Oil into Rail Tank Cars. These four courses are designed to provide supplemental awareness training for the Standard and reinforce guidance on environmental health and safety considerations to a variety of staff—from operations staff to managers and supervisors. In addition, others associated with the crude oil by rail value chain, such as government officials, first responders, NGOs, and consultants will also find the material valuable. 

Underground Storage Tank Training: The UST Operator Training program meets both federal and state operator training requirements as mandated by the Federal Underground Storage Tank Compliance Act of 2005. Approved in more states than any other provider API for the API WorkSafe™ offers training and certification in Class A, B and C. 

Service Station Contractor Safety Training: The premier program offered by API WorkSafe™ is the Service Station Contractor Safety Program that identifies contractor personnel who have passed a standardized examination covering the latest service station industry safety practices, based on API Recommended Practice 1646, Safe Work Practices for Contractors Working at Retail Petroleum/Convenience Facilities. The program provides awareness-level training on key safety issues found at petroleum retail job sites.
