One of the measures WPX continually monitors throughout the year is lost-time accidents (LTA). An LTA is a specific, reportable event as defined by OSHA. An LTA involves a work-related incident, injury or illness that requires an employee to miss time from their normal responsibilities.
WPX uses natural gas from our own wells as well as LNG in our drilling operations. We recently signed an agreement with an experienced LNG vendor who has supplied the fuel to 40 rigs on more than 1,200 wells in our industry.READ MORE
WPX employees who drive company vehicles are required to use hands-free devices while driving, or pull off the road to receive or place phone calls. They’re also urged to download AT&T’s DriveMode App. It automatically notifies anyone who sends you a message that you are driving and can’t respond. We think that is smart business.
WPX conducts regular full-scale drills to execute our long-standing emergency response plans. It’s an important part of maintaining and exercising our strength under all conceivable circumstances.
