A Historic Year for Safety

February 26, 2016

2015 was a historic year for safety at all Oil States locations.

For the first time in our company’s history Oil States worldwide went without a lost-time injury for the entire year! Also, our total recordable injury rate was the lowest in company history. In 2015, 80% of all Oil States locations went without a single OSHA recordable occupation injury or illness. This shows a true dedication to safety from all Oil States employees! Safety is everyone’s responsibility and part of everyone’s job at Oil States Industries. We constantly work to reduce risk by concentrating on potential issues to prevent injuries from occurring.
