Well Site Safety Overview
Well sites, both active and abandoned, are a very dangerous place for children and teens. The Oklahoma Energy Resources Board has two campaigns aimed at educating students about the risks associated with playing around well sites.
Duh-Duh Dangerous is OERB's new safety campaign targeting students K-6th grade. The campaign was kid-tested and kid-approved. Using a musical concept, Duh-Duh Dangerous uses a series of raps to educate young students about the dangers of playing around well sites. The campaign includes a DVD, posters and safety folders all available to order. Kids can also play games, download beats to create their own soundtracks and enter to win cool prizes at the Duh-Duh Dangerous Web site here.
Lucky is a campaign aimed at teenagers. A series of television and radio advertisements help drive the message that hanging out or partying around abandoned oilfield sites is risky business. Teens can learn more about well site safety at the lucky web site here.
As part of our safety programs, we also offer Oklahoma educators free safety-related materials like our safety posters and pocket folders for the classroom. The materials are a fun way for us to reach students with our safety message. Oklahoma educators can order free safety posters and pocket folders here.
Individuals outside the state of Oklahoma can purchase posters and folders by calling (405) 601-2717.
