After each job is scheduled, a site-specific safety plan is prepared. This plan is then reviewed by our Drilling Manager and Driller to insure we are prepared in terms of proper training methods and materials for each job or task. Prior to drilling, a site recon is performed during which overhead and underground utilities locations are reviewed. Our crew posthole digs to five feet on every hole regardless of assurance obtained during site recon. A safety meeting is conducted with all on-site personnel present. These meetings covers the safety plan, work plan, general safety precautions and site-specific information, including telephone/radio location, emergency and medical equipment location and decon procedures.
