This research case for funded by NIOSH for developing training videos and training materials for the high risk workers in the oil and gas industry that are both culturally relevant for the workers at site and also acceptable by them. Analysing the question of why this research study was undertaken directs us to the fact that before preparation of the training materials for the high risk workers, it would be always advisable to have a deep understanding of the occupational culture that are prevalent at field in the oil and gas mines. The question as to what was researched on in this case directs us to the answer that the work practices at the field sites, the environmental issues, workplace restrictions, language of the workers and their beliefs particularly beliefs with regard to safety, the different stories about the villains and heroes in the field, etc (Cullen, 2011).
