With oil accidents being a common occurrence in North Dakota, safety crews are extremely important.
One of just four classes held annually to perfect the skills needed for this job, was held in Minot this week.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is a government agency organization to protect outdoor workers from disaster.
The class in Minot focused on oil safety personnel, and how they should handle accidents when they happen.
The idea is to give visual examples of common oil field accidents, how to determine what went wrong, and how to prevent them from happening.
Program trainer Val Middleton says the enthusiasm of the crew shows that they understand the importance of the job.
(Val Middleton, OSHA Program Trainer) "These people, safety is their job. So that's why I like these classes, because they're here to learn, they want to learn, because it makes their job better."
The next OSHA training program in Minot will be in September of this year.
