COLIN RICE EXPLORATION AND TRAINING (PTY) LTD.
Where do you currently reside? I am originally from Zimbabwe, but moved to Johannesburg 34 years ago.
What is your primary function at your organisation? I started my company in 2009 in response to many people requesting drilling training. Since then the company has grown to provide online training, safety auditing and consulting services to the mining industry. I run my business, develop and provide the training as well as the safety auditing and consulting services.
Why do you think the Drill Rig and Safety Innovation Forum is important for the industry?
I am so excited to be sharing the DrillSafe platform with the industry. There are so many new, exciting ways of doing things and solving problems and I think the forum will bring the industry together to share these new ideas and ways of doing things. The forum will be a platform to highlight and bring to the forefront of people's minds the opportunities to improve safety performance with the overall objective of reducing accidents in our industry.
