Mission Well Services commits to proactive safety management with Intelex
July 27, 2011
TORONTO – In a world of reactive management, where many companies let accidents occur instead of taking proactive measures to ensure they don’t occur, Mission Well Services is setting a new standard.
Though it has been in business for just under a year, Mission Well Services, a hydraulic fracturing company based in South Texas and serving the oil and gas industry, has already turned to Intelex Technologies to implement a comprehensive, streamlined safety management system.
Many businesses surrounding the oil and gas sector tend to implement safety measures on a reactive basis, after a negative event has occurred, but Mission Well Services wants to do its best to ensure accidents never happen.
"We haven’t had any negative events, and we haven’t really had any incidents yet to speak of, but even though we’re a young company, we know this can be a high-risk industry," says Larry Kniejski, Marketing and Business Development Manager at Mission Well Services. "We just wanted to put our best foot forward."
Hydraulic fracturing, the process of generating a fracture in a rock layer with drills to increase oil and natural gas extraction and recovery rates, is among the more dangerous industries in the U.S. Implementing hydraulic fracturing technology can expose frontline employees to a variety of environmental health and safety hazards.
Fully aware of these dangers, Mission Well Services turned to Intelex, a pioneer in web-based EHS solutions with two decades of industry knowhow, to implement a proactive safety management system that would minimize the risk of injuries and fatalities. Further, with an eye on rapid expansion and long-term growth, the company wanted to implement a system that effectively and efficiently streamlined their safety program, and was scalable enough to both suit immediate needs and expand to accommodate significant future growth.
"Mission Well Services is an incredible example of a company that puts safety first," says Mark Jaine, President and CEO of Intelex. "It is very reassuring to see a business put proactive safety management at the top of their list of priorities, and we are honoured they have turned to Intelex to implement the most cutting-edge, results-driven safety management solutions in the world."
