IADC RigPass®

IADC’s RigPass® program (including SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf endorsements) is an accreditation system delivering a standardized safety orientation program for new employees, preparing the employees for almost any operating environment, at almost any site, onshore or offshore.

The IADC RigPass® accreditation system is designed to meet two requirements:

  • To identify core elements of safety orientation programs for new rig employees
  • To provide a means of recognizing programs that adhere to those elements

Completion of an IADC RigPass® or IADC RigPass® Course-to-Go accredited program confirms that personnel have met basic requirements defined by safety and training professionals in the drilling industry, irrespective of the rig’s location. These programs also satisfy the SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf requirements.

IADC RigPass® accreditation is open to all drilling and ancillary service contractors, commercial providers, and educational institutions and agencies.

Operators and contractors may be confident in the knowledge that every program is subject to review and evaluation by independent parties. Site visits and maintenance of an audit history are key parts of the IADC RigPass® system.
