The SafeGulf course provides an overview of industry concerns related to training and security. The course began due to concerns of operators not being consistent with training requirements, the significant number of RCA’s, and a high turnover rate of contractors. SafeGulf provides many benefits, such as; clear and defined minimum requirements, universal database that stores all training and photo, consistency between major Gulf of Mexico operators, and cost savings due to less re-training of contractors.
