Did you know? …

only 20% of company safety hands have even heard of PatchMap … a world class tool for correct information for their Emergency Response Plans among many other things. If there’s one tool that is underutilized in the O&G safety world, it’s PatchMap. Every single safety hand should have a GPS version in their truck … they will use it every day that they go to work and they may never use any other training that they have had. See my blog on First Aid trucks. 

Yet some companies use PatchMap wall to wall as their secret weapon in HR safety … note the word secret (got a blog on that too) … so that’s why we have to reach out to every single company, we are too good for our own good … didn’t see that one coming !

80% of Emergency Response and Journey Management Plans are only estimated? Without all the roads … the ones that PatchMap has, there are no other routing tools that can calculate the entire route, simple as that !

The calculation to determine if a first aid vehicle is required, distances and times for a journey are estimated as there is no tool to do it accurately … unless you use PatchMap or by actually driving the route (after some trial and error driving if you don’t have PatchMap)


PatchMap is THE GPS Navigation system built for safe and efficient navigation anywhere in the Canadian oil & gas regions of Canada. It has over 100,000 kms of roads no other navigation tool has. Tools for GPS, PC & Web.


Small cost … accurate routes.

First you have to get there … Use PatchMap or GET LOST !

*** PatchMap comes on an SD card for Garmin GPS units … the entire cost is less than front tires for a pick-up.

   Maybe it’s time to think seriously about safety !
