The Shepherd System was featured in this recent report on technology that improves worker safety in the Permian Basin by Sarah Strackhouse at CBS 7 News in Odessa, TX:
We are proud of our partnership with Rick Hadley and the management team at Diamond Pump and Transport (www.DiamondPumpTransport.com). Over the past 2 years, DPT and Shepherd have protected dozens of Lone Workers from deadly H2S gas and other hazardous situations by outfitting every vacuum truck with the Shepherd Lone Worker/Trucking configuration, which includes a Mobile Controller and a Personal Monitor.
Our satellite communications provide real-time GPS location data to the dispatchers who keep watch over the entire DPT fleet 24/7. Lone Workers feel safer knowing that they can hit the “Panic” button on the Shepherd Personal Monitor to call for help any where, any time.
