Equipment Corporation of America (ECA) held its first-ever BAUER OT-B Drilling Rig Operator’s Training from May 7–11, at its Coraopolis, Pa., headquarters. The course came in the wake of the 100-year-old company being designated a Regional Training Center for BAUER Foundation Equipment, a rare honour granted by BAUER Maschinen.

ECA trainers Joe Kinworthy and Jason Church tapped into 45 collective years of drilling rig experience to help operators from several respected foundation drilling contractors improve safety and productivity. The course focused on such topics as drilling rig stability, safe operation, ground conditions, safe working platforms, productivity and new technology.

“Drilling rig accidents often bring dire consequences,” said corporate director of parts and service Dave Schell. “If we can help to prevent even one tragedy for our customers, this program will be a success.”

ECA can host a customized training session or bring the program directly to a location of your choice. Contact Dave Schell at 301-599-1300 or dschell@ecanet.com for more information.  🍁
