The IADC RigPass accreditation system is designed to meet two requirements:
To identify core elements of safety orientation programs for new rig employees
To provide a means of recognizing programs that adhere to those elements
Completion of an IADC RigPass or IADC RigPass Course-to-Go accredited program confirms that personnel have met basic requirements defined by safety and training professionals in the drilling industry, irrespective of the rig’s location. These programs also satisfy the SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf requirements.
IADC RigPass accreditation is open to all drilling and ancillary service contractors, commercial providers, or educational institutions and agencies.
Operators and contractors may be confident in the knowledge that every program is subject to review and evaluation by independent parties. Site visits and maintenance of an audit history are key parts of the IADC RigPass system.
