Common Safety Orientation E-Learning


The Common Safety Orientation (CSO) is intended for new workers in the oil and gas industry. With content that is driven and endorsed by industry, the CSO provides consistent safety messaging that clearly explains safe work practices and eliminates the need for redundant general orientation training.

Companies can purchase an access code for multiple registration for the CSO course. An Access Code will be provided to the purchaser and can be distributed to each worker so they can complete the self registration process.
