If you have heard the name Vista Proppants and Logistics (or VPROP) before, you know that it is a leading provider of in-basin frac sand solutions. Vista Proppants and Logistics is famous for its “Texas Premium White” frac sand, and it is the leading producer of frac sand in all of Texas. “Texas Premium White” is highly comparable to the high-quality, fine frac sand mined in Wisconsin and Illinois, but, as a regional provider, VPROP can offer its frac sand at a much more competitive price. “Texas Premium White” can be found in the most prolific-producing regions in all of Texas and Oklahoma, including the Permian Basin, Eagle Ford Shale, and SCOOP/STACK. The company is headquartered in Fort Worth, TX.
Why Vista Proppants and Logistics Is Dedicated to Maintaining a Safety Culture
There’s no question that there are some very dangerous jobs in the oil and gas industry in the right environmental and safety initiatives aren’t put into place. In addition to making sure it is in full compliance with all applicable laws and industry regulations, Vista Proppants and Logistics has moved to create a company-wide culture that is inclined to safety both on the job and at home. Ownership has made it a point to reward those employees that exemplify this culture of stewardship towards health, safety, and the environment.
So how does Vista Proppants and Logistics maintain a safety culture and safe work environment? We already mentioned that the company recognizes excellence in safety performance. Additionally, ownership conducts ongoing assessments to identify opportunities for improvement. It has developed its own detailed procedures for safety and use of company equipment, and it has implemented a safety-first training program that focuses on best practices to sustain a safe work environment.
In addition to that, all employees have the full authority and responsibility to stop and report any unsafe work activity. This empowers all employees, regardless of title or work responsibilities, to consider safety at all times. Other initiatives VPROP has implemented to maintain a Total Safety Culture include new employee safety orientations, a Smith System driver training program, monthly and quarterly safety meetings, computer-based safety training, vendor safety practices, and the implementation of best-in-class technology.
