HEALTH AND SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY

For all drilling activities, health and safety in the workplace, product quality, and operations efficiency are inseparable. Rouillier Drilling strictly applies a policy that contributes to health and safety and its workers’ well-being. The company encourages the participation and accountability of its employees in matters concerning the prevention and elimination of work-related injuries.

WE INNOVATE DIRECTLY IN THE FIELD
ZERO ENERGY: A MAJOR INNOVATION IN MATTERS CONCERNING HEALTH AND SAFETY

Moving parts are dangerous for assistant drillers. This is a recurring problem at drilling sites. In order to remedy this problem, a team was created to find a way to eliminate the possibilities for a drilling assistant to enter into contact with moving parts. The idea submitted by the team is simple. They developed a maintained pushbutton. This button, installed at a certain distance from the drill, renders impossible all contact between team members and the drill’s moving parts. 

Zero energy

Until now, results have been very positive and the entire team is proud of this innovation which marks a major change in diamond drilling procedures in matters concerning health and safety in the workplace.

Watch for this logo, appearing on all company drills, which proudly highlights a system developed by and for its employees.
