The PEC Basic Orientation safety awareness course includes both SafeGulf and SafeLand.

This one-day program meets API RP 75 & API RP T-1 requirements and provides a basic understanding at an awareness level of certain general safety information an employee should know before entering a company facility and while performing their assigned work duties.
