Safety Notes

Your opinion on hands free rod handling systems

Erin Rice

We are looking to gather data about the general usage of hands-free rod handling systems in Southern Africa and the real versus perceived benefits. We will use the information you provide to better inform the DrillSafe articles that will be published later this month. **Please note that the information you submit will be kept confidential**

Please could you complete the questions below and then click submit. 
Please exclude grade control operations where a carousel is used as a hands free system. We are only concerned with the use of hands free rod handling systems on exploration drilling operations. 

Thank you for your time and input, it is greatly appreciated!
