Well sites are not play sites.
While well sites help power Oklahoma, they are no place for anyone but trained industry professionals. Period. Pump jacks, storage tanks, pipelines and any area around a site are dangerous, even if they do not appear to be active. Not to mention, it is illegal and carries trespassing fines and even jail time. So leave it to the professionals and avoid these sites so we can keep Oklahoma safe.
The OERB Road Safety program.
Safety is the number one priority and goal of the oil and natural gas industry. That is why we are working to enact as many proactive steps as possible to ensure drivers in our communities are safe.
Through the OERB Road Safety program, the industry, state agencies and law enforcement agencies have joined together to create a Safety Corridor on Highway 33 between Kingfisher and Watonga. The goal of the corridor is to eliminate distracted driving, encourage lower speeds and remind travelers to utilize seat belts. All of these precautions will help community members and industry workers arrive at their destination safely.
Since the Safety Corridor’s inception in early 2019, collisions have decreased by 37 percent.
