Safety Management Systems was recently featured, out of 1,711 vendors, as the Louisiana Vendor of Choice in an American Petroleum Institute survey on oil and natural gas’ impact on American economic and job growth.

The survey found that the oil and natural gas industry in Louisiana supports approximately 412,600 jobs, 16.2 percent of the state’s total employment. It noted that in 2013, the SMS Training Academy trained more than 34,000 oil and gas workers, and SMS employees performed more than 13,000 hours of additional training.

As a result of this training and commitment to safety, SMS can help reduce injury rates, improve training compliance and assure successful contractor and compliance audits.

SMS is a division of Acadian and one of the largest providers of safety, medical, security, training, and health and wellness services in the United States.

Since 1971, Acadian has been committed to providing the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. In the past decade, the company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services in health, safety, and transportation.
