Operator Qualification (OQ)
The intent is a safe and qualified workforce. That's where we come in.
We grew up with OQ.
When CFR 192 & 195 passed legislation, companies scrambled to implement it. Grace was given to many companies as Operator Qualifications ramped up to ensure a more qualified workforce. OQ Programs have now had time to mature, and expectations are higher than ever for Operators to not only meet PHMSA's standards—but to exceed them. And as Contractors are utilized more and more within our industry, they are also expected to uphold these same high standards.
We understand the push to a more proactive industry, but we also understand it will take time to get there. We have solutions to encompass your entire program (and beyond). And we have a team dedicated to implementing and streamlining your transition.
