Did you miss us? It sure felt good to have a break, but we’re back with our weekly The Driller Newscast — and just in time. This week, we give folks a preview of the 2023 South Atlantic Jubilee, coming up July 29-31, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This year’s show, for the first time, features a hands-on emergency response course called “Stop the Bleed,” complete with life-like dummies and scenarios.

“You’re going to be doing tourniquets and stopping bleeding — as the course suggests, and all the emergency response things that you could possibly have to endure in the field,” says the show's Executive Director Kim Barclay. “This is more important than just CE credits. This could save someone’s life.”

Of course, that’s in addition to three tracks of other CE courses and the family-friendly trade show folks in the industry build their vacations around.

We also get into the recent ruling at the Supreme Court on Navajo Nation water rights, as well as hydration safety for those hot, summer days.

Plus, we get a special appearance from The Driller editor Jeremy Verdusco.

This episode covers:

  • Jobsite safety amid record heat in parts of the U.S.
  • The importance of hydration on hot days
  • Hydrating with water versus other drinks
  • The recent Supreme Court ruling in Arizona v. Navajo Nation
  • Historic drought in the Western U.S.
  • The upcoming 2023 South Atlantic Jubilee
  • The importance of advanced CPR and emergency response for construction workers
  • Continuing education for drilling professionals
  • Jubilee’s “family trade show” heritage
