FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE NEED FOR HELP & WHAT YOU CAN DO

American Energy Heroes is a non-profit corporation formed with one focus in mind: to provide relief and support for American energy workers in need.  The foundation of our approach is centered around the Four Core Pillars of American Energy Heroes.  To learn more about the Four Core Pillars, click on the link below!

The Energy Industry is the backbone of America. 

The brave men and women who work to provide this great country with its energy supply face immense challenges to maintain a safe working environment.  Whether it's on a high pressure drilling rig, high above the earth on a wind turbine, or deep below the earth's surface in a coal mine, our American energy workers risk life and limb every day.  When accidents happen, the results are often catastrophic for not only the workers involved, but also their loved ones.  Join American Energy Heroes today to help provide support and relief to American energy workers and their families who have been affected by workplace accidents.   

"We work as a team and do the best we can to look out for one another out here, but it's dangerous work and accidents happen.  I've lost several friends that way and it's something you never really get over."
- Jerry O'Hara, Oklahoma rig hand

The Four Core Pillars of AEH


  • Immediate Sensitive Response - In the aftermath of an accident, it is paramount that the immediate needs of the worker and the family be tended to (needs such as funerary arrangements and costs, grief counseling, assistance with childcare, and other such tasks).  AEH strives to provide a flexible Immediate Sensitive Response to assist during the difficult days following an accident.
  • Safety Education & Accident Prevention - There's an old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  The same certainly holds true for accident prevention as well, as the best way to address an accident is to prevent it from happening in the first place.  AEH places a great emphasis on safety training and education by taking a more informal and personal approach.  At AEH, the focus is on coming to you, at the worksite, in the normal environment to share safety tips in a fun and informal way, as opposed to a long formal seminar in a controlled setting far removed from the actual worksite.  The attention and reponse to an on-site demonstration fosters greater retention of the material covered and leads to a safer workplace, which will, in turn, save lives.
  • Reeducation and Reintegration - At AEH, we recognize that it can be a difficult task to transition out of the energy sector and into a different field of work.  If someone has been a rig hand since their early 20's and it's the only job they've known, their prospects may appear limited upon trying to reenter the workforce after an accident forces the end of their career in the oil fields or coal mines.  AEH works tirelessly to establish connections and maintain a database to assist energy workers with transitioning out of the fields and into a new future to support themselves and their families.  If you're an energy worker who has been injured on the job or you feel the physical demands of the job are becoming too much for you, contact AEH today for more information about our reeducation and reintegration programs:  info@aeheroes.com
  • Research - Knowledge is key when it comes to identifying and solving problems.  AEH will always strive to be as knowledgeable as possible when it comes to understanding the various challenges and issues facing modern energy workers.  Research is an absolute necessity when it comes to identifying issues and creating solutions in the complex and ever-evolving energy exploration field.  At AEH, we seek to uncover the finer points about energy field work and safety.  Broad statistics are important, but we are more focused on ground-level aspects, such as finding out exactly which tools the workers feel the most uncomfortable with and why.  Perhaps something as simple as changing the grip on a tool can solve the problem of it slipping.  Sometimes the smallest details and margins can make the difference.
