BJ's DST employees follow safety guidelines set by the company. Although these standards are important, using “common sense” and your head to “think before you act”, will help keep you out of unsafe situations. Because drill stem testers are around different personnel all the time, testers will always “watch out for the other guy”. Testers work with the rig crews to get the job done safely. Routinely, safety meetings are held before picking up or laying down test tools, rigging up surface equipment or loading the test truck. Since the tester sees tests much more often than the rig crew, he can let the crew know what to expect while testing on bottom or tripping the tool in or out of the hole.

Being a service company, BJ's DST employees are at different locations and working for different operators and contractors all of the time. The operators and contractors also have safety policy guidelines, the employees at BJ's DST follow all safety rules set down by the contractor and operator of the well. Oil field locations can be dangerous, but by following the safety rules and using common sense, the employees at BJ's DST will work to keep them a safe place to work. An injury to any personnel or the loss of life is to great a price to pay to get the job done. By taking a few extra minutes to do the job safely, the pain or injury of a lifetime can be avoided. BJ's DST is proud to have worked as a safe company and plans to continue working in a safe manner.
