General Oilfield Driver Improvement

GODI

The Oilfield Driver Awareness course replaces two courses previously offered by Enform – General Oilfield Driver Improvement (GODI) and Light Duty Vehicle (LDV). Guided by the six industry associations, the decision was made to combine the information from the General Oilfield Driver Improvement (GODI) and Light Duty Vehicle (LDV) courses into one course – Oilfield Driver Awareness. The Oilfield Driver Awareness course is focused on developing effective driver behaviour and attitudes, helping drivers maintain an attitude of safety when they are behind the wheel. The updated material has less emphasis on technical driving instruction.

Course Details:

The course duration is 8 hours.

Topics include:

  • Developing a professional driving attitude
  • Understanding and dealing with personal limitations (physical and mental well-being)
  • Driving proactively - how to be an defensive driver
  • Responding to changing road conditions
  • Planning for the journey
  • Controlling exposure to hazards
  • Developing Emergency Response Plans
  • Performing safety inspections

Certification:

If an individual currently holds a valid General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate no action is required. Once their certificate expires they will be required to take the new Oilfield Driver Awareness program.

The Oilfield Driver Awareness certificate is equivalent to the General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate. Provincial agencies are aware of the updated course offering and will be accepting the Oilfield Driver Awareness certificate as a replacement of the GODI or LDV certificate.

Demerit Reduction:

The demerit reduction process for the new course will remain the same as it was for the General Oilfield Driver Improvement or Light Duty Vehicle certificate.
