PEC - SSQ ®  

 

ISN collects self-reported conformance information from contractors/suppliers, verifies its accuracy, and then reports the results in an easy-to-follow format. This allows corporations to select those resources that best meet internal and governmental requirements, while providing contractors/suppliers the opportunity to centralize their conformance information, saving time and gaining presence in the marketplace. PEC provides standardized safety and skills training to the oil and gas contractor workforce and online standardized forms for reporting safety information from Contractor to Operator. PEC’s Standardized Safety Questionnaire (SSQ) is utilized by the industry’s leading oil companies (Operators) and Large Contractors to prequalify and risk assess their Contractors.
