It seems not a day goes by that we don’t read about a serious accident in the Texas oil patch. Regulatory agencies, insurance companies, industry organizations and trade associations are working hard to reverse the trend. But the most important work, the kind that fuels tangible change, is being done on job sites from the Permian Basin to the Eagle Ford Shale.
You won’t read those stories in the news, but they deserve to be told. They are stories of employers who believe you cannot put a price tag on human life, stories of fathers who come home safely to their families every night. Texas Mutual reserved this page of our website to shine a spotlight on employers who have made safety a core business process in their organizations.
Together, we can make the Texas oil patch a safer, more productive place to work.
