Rice Safety Training Services

How many safety violations and “worst” practices can you spot in this tongue-in-cheek marketing video?

(This video is from one of Rice’s seven-sister companies, Rice Oil Sucks. It was scripted and shot to draw attention to a hidden environmental problem: point-source oil pollution at businesses that do not have their underground oil water separators regularly cleaned).

If you can can spot all safety violations, you’ll earn a 10% savings on your safety training course.

At Rice Safety Services, our Safety Director, Tony Dreussi, has a simple mission:

“To make a difference. I want to help change attitudes and inspire safety disciplines to insure workers return home to their families each and every night, safe and in one piece.”

Rice Safety Services does NOT offer online safety training. Our goal is to sell the experience and reinforce the wisdom that the most effective safety training is accomplished face-to-face, not online.

Rice Safety Services provides hands on, interactive training from a licensed trainer who has actual field experience - Tony has seen first hand what happens when workers, both skilled and unskilled, do not follow safety practices each and every time.


Over his 40-year industrial and general services career, Tony has worked across the midwest in oil & gas fields, steel facilities and manufacturing plants. He’s lugged miles of vac hose, fired up countless water jetters ranging from 10k to 40k PSI and operated 100’s of wet/dry turbo vacs in some of the most dangerous conditions and confined spaces, including bag houses and cooling beds.
