Membership and Benefits


Here’s what one of our members has to say about the value of belonging to the Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association:

RJR Safety Inc is a workplace safety consulting and training company partnering with companies to reduce the number of worker injuries. RJR Safety Inc audits workplaces for hazards, conditions, behaviors, and risks that can lead to worker injuries then develops the necessary controls to address the hazards, conditions, behaviors, and risks so workers do not get injured.

As a member of PIOGA since 2009 and involved with the PIOGA Safety Committee since becoming a member, the benefits of being an active member are many, to the industry, to my company, and to myself personally.

PIOGA has been involved in and supported the industry for more than 100 years. PIOGA supports the industry and members by taking up legal issues through the legal system, addressing issues with the regulators, participating on various regulatory boards, and lobbying the lawmakers for the good of the industry. PIOGA works with other industry organizations in surrounding states, regional organizations, and national organizations for the benefit of the industry.

RJR Safety Inc. has benefitted from membership in the many opportunities to network with, meet, work beside, and benefit from access to many other companies in the industry. RJR Safety Inc continues to thrive supporting the efforts of the industry to ensure that workers go home to their families at the end of each day or shift. The many technical and networking events provide opportunity for building business relationships within the oil & gas industry.

As a Safety Professional involved with the PIOGA and our Safety Committee, I have access to many other Safety Professionals, Operations Professionals, and Executives in the industry from which to build a professional network. This access has increased my knowledge and understanding of the industry as well as providing continued opportunities for supporting the industry with the networking events, technical seminars, and presentations at PIOGA-sponsored events.
