To Franky....Thank you for the kind words about Glen. One of Glen's virtues was knowing how important friends were in life. I am his mother and would like to hear from or know of anyone who was with Glen those last few minutes of his life

I worked for a man with the same name.Went on a 30 hr. job, came in went on another,then another. 90 plus hrs. I got home.This wasd in 1978 or 1979. Many times we could not get our checks cashed.I new some people that would go to one store and cash there checks, then go to the pawn shop to get part of there money.The man has no heart for people. Greed is his need.

We tell him something is broke he don't care. I told him someone would end up getting hurt badly. I knew glen he was a good kid.

shit happens ive worked the oilfield my whole life and the bottom line is if you are smart and pay attention accidents are preventable . maybe some of these roughnecks should have iq tests before they go out in the field because most our accidents happen from people fuckin shit up they should not be messing with in the first place..

Some comments here are completely unnecessary!

I have now idea how this is the first time I've heard of this. I went to HS with Glen and his Sister, they're all great people. Glen, was an amazing person, one of those people that could always make you laugh and generally got along with everyone. My heart goes out to his family! We'll see you on the other side buddy!

I worked for Caliber years ago and walked off the rig on one of the jobs when I had a near miss.

Caliber continues to increase it's body count in PA. At some point, the negligence of this irresponsible outfit crosses the line to criminal. Somehow though, they are allowed to continue business as usual...how many more will they murder?

I agree with PA Watcher not only as a mother of a caliber employee who was killed but also as aperson who has respect for human life and the concern of the men now and in the future who works for this company. It is criminal and with each day I still hope to try to do something about this injustice. I feel it is finally time to do more research and start the steps in stopping the crime of killing our sons, husbands, and friends. Any help would be welcomed....

At this point, DOT is unaware of the fatal accident they had in May in which a man was murdered by their negligence. However, the customers are coming down on safety in the area and it is just a matter of time until all they have left is the perfect codependant relationship with Cabot. These two were made for eachother. I only hope the authorities move on them before another life is cut short.

teague is very self centered and doesnt care how well the equipment and machinery is up kept as long as people are out getting the job done nothing has to work right i know this cuz i currently work for him in northeastern pa in the marcelus shale area and there are so many things that need worked on but nothing ever gets fixed and when you say something to jt he will tell you that it dont matter it will still work he has been doin this for a long time and he knows what he is doing it is all bull shit and i can wait to find another job

It's really bad theat people have lost their lives in the oil fields in any job for that matter... I'll be honest though not much has changed with Caliber casing. They dont care if your sick if you miss a day they won't work you for the rest of the week unless you got some pull from one of the supers... I was working for them out in Troy, PA and NY which I had to quit cause of medical reasons but they really dont care I've seen workers left and right get hurt and they still expect you to get up and do the job. You could be pressure washing the oilrig in the middle of a snowtorm and the dont give you face covers to avoid oil and oil debris hitting your face and such.... I understand that a job is a job but we are human beings and some regulations should be made for everyones safety... as far as people going high to work???? I have seen it all.... high or drunk.... it happens and it's scary

@ Mister Words.
There are plenty of regulations in place to protect workers...even those with the misfortune to be employed by Caliber. However, they are only as effective as the will of the company man on a rig and the customer's commitment to safety. This scumbag outfit has been run off from several rigs and to my knowledge, a couple of customers are forbidding their use under any circumstances. While it is sad that they continue to limp along without facing consequences, it is just a matter of time until they are rendered unemployable here.
