Maintaining safety, insurance, quality and regulatory information on contractors and suppliers can often be a strain on internal resources. ISN streamlines these processes, saving time and improving safety standards. Hiring Clients use ISNetworld to standardize contractor management across multiple sites and geographic regions, clearly communicate requirements and expectations and exchange data with other internal systems. The result is lower incident rates and higher compliance numbers. 


Today, when it comes to safety compliance and prevention we know that safety professionals have to do more work… with less help. Helping you meet that responsibility is what we at the Utah Safety Council do best. In fact, that’s all we do – help you save time, money and lives through accident prevention. Take a closer look at how we can help you improve your safety program — on and off-the-job.

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. It is our belief that standardization is a key component to not only simplifying common safety practices and saving money for our customers, but also to making the work environment a safer place. Since our inception in 1993, we have worked to bring the industry together on common issues that everyone faces. The PEC Basic Orientation and Core Compliance programs, which are accredited by both SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf, are required or accepted by most major and independent oil and gas operators in the Gulf of Mexico and on land in the United States. This allows an employee to complete our training programs and gain access to most oil and gas platforms without having to repeat redundant training they have already received elsewhere, saving both time and money. The same goes for safety information reporting; instead of completing a safety questionnaire for each of their customers, a contractor company can complete our online questionnaire once and “release” it to Operators of their choosing.

Experience Modification Rate (EMR)

Simply speaking, your Experience Mod compares your Workers’ Compensation claims experience to other employers of similar size operating in the same type of business.  Your Experience Mod is calculated by the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) or, in some states, an independent agency. In general, each year insurance carriers report to the calculating agency your class codes, payrolls, and losses for the last five years. The computing agency uses three complete years of data ending one year prior to the effective date of the rating period and compares your specific payrolls and losses to the industry average losses for like business of similar size. If you are at the industry average, your Experience Mod is a 1.0. If your experience is 20% better than average, your Experience Mod would be a .80 or 20% worse at 1.20. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) has published a booklet entitled “ABCs of Experience Rating”. It is available on their website at Visit This brochure explains the experience rating plan in greater detail.
