THE USE AND ABUSE OF WRENCHES

This series was prompted by a fatality involving a pipe wrench. Several different types of wrench are used in drilling operations and all, when used correctly, will provide trouble and injury free service. It is only when wrenches are misused or abused that injury occurs. The aim of this series is to highlight some of the risks as well as the proper use of wrenches.


DRILL RIG CAPACITY SERIES

This series examines how drill rig specifications can be misleading. We identify the 'gaps' in these specifications that influence the legal implications of drill rig operation. The articles in the series take a deeper look at the depth capacity of hydraulic long stroke drills and top drive drills.
