Atlas Oil Company was named the Excellence in Health and Safety award winner and a finalist in the Trucking Company of the Year and Oilfield Services Company of the Year award categories at the 2018 Rocky Mountain Oil and Gas Awards for their outstanding work and impressive safety record in the region.

"When we entered the oil field in 2014, we knew we had to do so with the 'Safety First' mentality that has guided Atlas since our founding in 1985," said Atlas President Bob Kenyon, who attended the award ceremony along with key members of Atlas' leadership team. "By leveraging strategic business model innovation, new technologies and best-in-class training, we've drastically improved the safety of oil field workers. There's no better feeling than knowing your work may have saved lives in the field."

Atlas' safety initiatives were all accomplished while adding 160 field employees from January 2017 to June 2018 and resulted in several impressive statistics in the Rocky Mountain region including:

  • A company-wide 65% reduction in TRIR from 2016-2017
  • A further 30% company-wide reduction in TRIR from 2017 to June 2018
  • An 89% reduction in TRIR from 2016-2017 in the Rocky Mountain Region
  • A YTD TRIR (as of 6/18) of 0.0

"Safety always comes first at Atlas," said Gerry King, Atlas' Vice President of EHS, Risk and HR. "FOCUS, Face Of the Company United in Safety, is the campaign on which we base all of our training and safety initiatives. As we grow, this campaign will continue to guide each decision we make."
