Health, Safety and Environment Management Policy

Precision Drilling Services operates a comprehensive Safety Management System to ensure that all hazards identified in the workplace or site and potential occurrences detrimental to personnel, operations, assets, and the environment and their impact on business performance are identified and effectively controlled.

Precision Drilling Services has a comprehensive Quality Management System, Environmental Management System, and Occupational Health and Safety Management System.

Training at all levels is also a key part of our commitment to health, safety, and environmental protection with routine safety meetings, briefings, and investigations into both incidents and near misses. As a minimum, all supervisory staff will hold a minimum of a cert III or cert IV in drilling operations.

Full risk assessments and method statements will be drawn up for all site activities, and staff who will be involved with a specific activity will be briefed on the key features of the activity. All staff will have access to the health and safety file held on-site and in the office.
