Teach and certify hoist
operators to
understand the
mechanics, operational
issues and hazards.
We have blended workplace illustrations with hazard recognition into a tried-and-true method of learning by
writing.  But learning these subjects within this material comes easier because of the extensive illustrations.  
Your employees will close knowledge gaps about hazards and come away far better educated, in a shorter time
frame.  The quality is excellent!

Drilling Rig Hoist Operator Certification Workbook - Updated for 2019
- Skills + Safety Training

Certify hoist and rig operators.  This unique workbook groups "all things Lifting & Hoisting" together and 50
additional pages to create a
Hoist Operator certification program for Drilling Rig employees. The best part is
that a relatively inexpensive workbook can be utilized right on a working drilling rig to achieve this
certification....with no overtime required.  You don't need a training rig...you've already got one!
The Instructor Copy has test keys + a
log for test scores and a red binding.
The Roughnecking 101 Workbook has come a long way since it's introduction in 2007.  But it's
content was never settled....... until now.

This final version of the Roughnecking 101 Workbook is the result of an effort to produce a way to "train
roughnecks right on their rigs" as was demanded of the author when he worked for a drilling company.  
What followed the original was seven revisions and then a total rebuild in 2019, that incorporates 'Rig
Pass' compliance.  This workbook is intuitive for users and is replete with practice test questions to
ensure understanding.  There are
>1200 illustrations which makes it multi-lingual.  This is truly a quality-
engineered training solution that covers Rig Pass orientation and 101 training for drilling rig employees.  
Usable on the rig or in the classroom.  178 pages.

Additional test questions and a Leaders Guide PowerPoint available upon request.

Illustrated Safety Alerts taken from real live events/accidents that have occurred in a broad range of industry
and life.  They are laid out simply, illustrated and mistakes analyzed-listed on the pages so employees will have the
opportunity to review.

We all know that story-telling is the best way to promote memory retention in a busy workforce training effort.  Safety
Alerts are often shared and then forgotten or lost in a pile of paperwork.  Now these stories are organized into a
single book that can be shared by your workforce.  A sign-off sheet after every page can account for the reviews.   
Safety Meetings become "self-driven".

48 pages of safety alerts paired with 48 sign-off sheets, 52 illustrations.  The quality is excellent.

Graphic Safety, LLC is pleased to announce that The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) has agreed to carry our
drilling rig related publications in their online bookstore.  You can purchase them by clicking the linked logo.

IADC recognized, that after our four year effort to remake all of the workbooks and build more, we had achieved publications that will
be useful in rapidly training the new workforce required to propel us into the next phase of industry expansion.  
Additionally, we have a set of posters that are heavy-duty laminated
and grommeted/bound in one corner to use for training on drilling
rigs.  This is especially useful for new employees.  We made
hundreds of these'

seen them.  But all of those posters have since been updated.
