DRILLSAFE VISION AND MISSION
We want to create a health and safety-conscious exploration drilling community, focussed on the people, equipment, environment and procedures involved in exploration drilling.
To create an online forum to facilitate the exchange of information between all stakeholders in the exploration drilling industry.
To disseminate health and safety information for the purposes of creating a safer exploration drilling environment.
To create a database of exploration-related incident statistics.
Everyone involved in the drilling industry is aware of the increased emphasis on health and safety performance demanded by mining and exploration companies, but unfortunately many contractors fall far short of mining company expectations.
DrillSafe is part of a set of initiatives to assist contractors, mining companies and other people involved in exploration drilling to better understand what these new requirements are and how they can be applied to ensure safety in the industry.
