At first the rules might seem mind-numbing, however, there's no confu- sion about the risks a Safety Coordinator must recognize and what he must know to pre- vent the risks from getting out of hand. Everything from fire to toxic substances to first aid and much more. His primary tools are a clip- board and a checklist. His duty is to inspect and train. He makes sure that all segments of the company's operations, especially the drilling rigs, the workover rigs, and the well sites are in compliance, and that everyone knows how to do things right. As experienced oilfield workers understand, "Better a thousand times care- ful than once dead." The path to becoming a safety coordinator might seem rea- sonably straight, however, the route taken by Travis Cooksey swung through many turns along the way. Those twists and turns say a lot about his char- acter. Before moving himself, Publisher's preface: Every morning we're inundated with sensationalized accounts of events that are presented as news when, in fact, these accounts are accusing diatribes built on finger-pointing and fact-omissions. We're digesting our morning coffee along with emotionally charged rants created to serve the agendas of those who prepare them, rants that turn the front page into the editorial page. Too often the target is the U.S. Oil & Gas Industry, the industry that's worn a BULLSEYE on its back for the last few decades while, ironically, providing the country's economy with one of the most important elements for growth: low-cost energy. However, since we at the Bakken Oil Business Journal know the U.S. Oil & Gas Industry is the industry that opens the door to increasing the prosperity of the US more than any other, I present you with something real, an account of some hard-working folks who are showing the world why the US is the greatest country in the world, why it is the land of the free and home of the brave. ➤ continued, pg 24 2011 2014
