Paying Attention To Industrial Safety Concerns

After one of my guys almost got smashed by an overhead boom, I knew that we had to make a few changes. Instead of ignoring safety protocols and living with our outdated equipment, I decided to invest a little money into industrial equipment and supplies. We updated our machinery to include safety features, and we started asking each of our employees to wear brightly-colored jackets so that we could tell where everyone was. It took an overhaul of the entire business, but when we were done, things ran a lot smoother. Check out this blog for ideas on how to keep your team safe.


4 Types Of Equipment That You May Need To Rent For Your Oilfield

Running an oilfield is a lot of work. Sometimes you need assistance with getting that work done. In order to effectively run an oilfield, you don't need to own all the equipment that you need. You can rent some of the equipment. There are lots of companies that specialize in renting a wide variety of equipment you require to keep your oilfield running safely. 

#1 Forklifts

One of the most basic pieces of equipment that you will need out on the oilfield is a forklift. It allows you to move items around easily. When you rent a forklift, make sure that it is capable of holding the amount of material you need to move around and that it can work with the terrain on your job site.

#2 Light Towers

Next, light towers are necessary when you are out working somewhere where there is not a lot of artificial light at night. Make sure you have the light you need in the evening hours. This will allow you to work at all hours and keep an eye on your equipment.

You may need to rent a number of various light towers that will provide you with different degrees of lights. You can rent light towers that let out as little as 4,000kW per hour or that let out 20,000kW per hour.

#3 Trash Containers

When you are running an oilfield, you need to keep things clean. Part of keeping things clean includes renting large trash containers that are capable of transporting multiple years of trash all at once. This is necessary in order to keep your worksite clean. 

#4 Portable Water & Sewer System

Oil fields are worksites that require access to water, and if there are lots of employees present, also require access to a working bathroom. At some point, just having portable toilets is not going to cut it anymore.

That is why it may be worth it to invest in a portable water system and a portable sewer system. A portable water system will allow you to have access to water for all the systems that will need it, and a portable sewer system will allow you to provide bathrooms for all the living quarters of employees who work and live on site.

Rent all the equipment you need to keep your oilfield running. You don't have to invest in purchasing all the equipment you need, you can rent it instead. For more information, contact an oilfield rental equipment service.
