Our #1 priority is making sure all members of our Team go home safely to their families.

We have a responsibility to every Team member – our employees, contractors, clients, and shareholders — to proactively work on strengthening safety.

We believe safety starts with the people who make up our team. Fostering and encouraging a culture of safety, where safety is a part of every process, is paramount to achieving a zero incidence record. We also believe that investing in training our employees helps keep everyone safe. All our drillers are trained and carry certificates in:

  • Fall arrest
  • due diligence
  • transportation of dangerous goods
  • Spill response
  • Lock and tag out
  • Isolation training
  • Fire protection
  • St John’s Ambulance, first aid and CPR
  • Anti-harassment training

As part of the team safety program:

  • Safety comes first in all activities.
  • We are continually assessing, investigating, evaluating and improving our safety systems
  • We invest in having up to date, safe equipment
  • Safety guards in place over all rotating parts
  • Regular safety inspections of our equipment and sites
  • PPE provided and properly worn
  • We are registered with the Canadian Diamond Drilling Association (CDDA) DEC program
  • We are involved in the CDDA Board of Directors, and serve as advisory member of the National Occupational Standards Development Committee of MiHR for Diamond Driller.
