Drilling is one of the areas of mineral exploration with significant safety risks and for a safe worksite, requires careful attention. This PDAC session will highlight some of the main aspects of auditing and monitoring drill safety from the point of view of the driller and the geologist. Both – like all workers - have responsibility for safety and need to work as a team. The objective is to bring forth the main actions for successful health and safety during a drill program. Excellent Boart Longyear Ltd training videos will be used and PDAC is grateful to the company for this contribution.
The videos will be introduced by Jimmy Barrieau, Boart Longyear’s Global Director, EHST and Bill Mercer, the Chair of the PDAC Health and Safety Committee.
