Here at Bostech Drilling, some of the key principles and beliefs that our company holds are built upon a commitment to health, safety and the environment. Within the drilling industry and similar sectors, there are many safety risks which can occur while on the job—this is why companies small and large must put strict health and safety protocols in place to ensure each individual involved in an operation is safe at all times.
With a dedication to health and safety, the team at Bostech Drilling has decided to put together a helpful guide below to outline the many ways proper safety within the drilling industry may be achieved.
Safety training within the drilling industry
To ensure each drilling operation is conducted both efficiently and safely, it is imperative that everyone involved completes prior safety training requirements. All industries will have their own procedures and safety structures in place, all of which have been designed to meet the particular setting and job at hand. In most instances within the mining and drilling industry, safety training will involve a range of modules which have been put in place to help a worker better develop their awareness when it comes to hazards within the workplace.
Incidents should always be reported
Even with strict health and safety procedures in place, human error is still possible within the drilling industry and similar sectors. If an incident or a near-miss occurs, it is important for those involved to thoroughly report what has happened. By doing this, factors which may have led to the safety issue can be assessed and therefore prevented from occurring again in future operations.
Not only is it important to look after workers, but our environment must also be considered within the drilling industry. Like all businesses, there are various strategies which may be put in place to reduce our carbon footprint and care for our environment wherever possible. For example, here at Bostech Drilling, we make use of tablets rather than paper and our zero-impact drilling techniques ensure that lasting damage to our environment is avoided.
