We are only one week out, but there is still time to register for AAPG’s Field Safety Leadership Course to be held 20–21 March 2019 at the ExxonMobil Houston Campus.

This exciting short course is a perfect blend of classroom exercises and field work to give attendees a truly hands on training experience. The course is designed for anyone who leads or coordinates field activities such as Field Trips, Field Seminars, Field Camps, or general field work for companies or student groups. Participants will acquire and practice strategies to prepare for and conduct safe and effective field activities.

This course will be divided into two days:

Day 1 – Classroom Activities
The first day of this fully interactive course covers injuries and illnesses, why accidents occur, first-aid review, and the field safety process in normal operations. Participants will also practice using field-safety-training materials and modules designed for field-camp students and suitable for use in field-methods classes.
Day 2 – Field Activities
On the second day, participant teams will take turns leading a model field day at a nearby site including briefings, driving, hiking, risk assessment, intervening for safety, safety equipment use, and emergency response drills. This field day allows the participants to practice what they learned the first day, interact and learn from their colleagues.

Goal: Acquire and practice strategies to prepare for and conduct safe and effective field activities.
