Drilling Rig Hazard Recognition Workbook Ver 3
Back by popular demand.  We had discontinued this workbook but customers continually request copies.  
Therefore, we revised and updated it to reflect more hazards, more clearly.  

The goal of the Hazard Recognition exercises in this workbook are to teach student employees critical thinking
about hazards.  It has proven very effective for many customers.  That is why we have sold >8000 copies of
previous versions.  If your goal is common sense, then you must establish common knowledge.

Update April 2019 - This workbook has not materially changed, but we found better ways to illustrate many issues.

Some Safeland related pages will have areas for notes, to fill in specific policy issues. Workbook will come with our
standard 25 question test, but we will also have available three 100 question test packets.
