Ascent Resources Host Environmental Workshop

On May 1st Ascent Resources held an environmental workshop at our Watson Pad located in Guernsey County.  This environmental workshop is part of a several part series Ascent will be conducting this year.  The purpose of these workshops is to better equip our vendors and contractors with the tools they need to practice a safe and environmentally friendly workplace. On Tuesday, this workshop encompassed spill prevention stations where vendors and contractors learned about: spill kits and how to use them, pad drains, waste containers, wetlands, sheen vs. not sheen and finished off the workshop with how to remediate a spill.  During these exercises the vendors and contractors were split into several groups where they learned a different skill set at every station.  Each station lasted 15 minutes followed by a group presentation on how to remediate a spill.  

Ascent Resources considers environmental health and safety to be a top priority of the company and therefor doing workshops like this helps relay that importance on to those who work for us.  In total we had 31 different vendors/contactors participate and 55 people total attended.  Ascent could not have made this event what it was without the help of our three partners: Rettew, Sunpro and Wise Trucking.  Thank you again to everyone who came out, assisted and participated.
