Each job McRill Drilling does is just a little bit different, but we maintain the same core philosophies in every construction job. Safety starts from the top, and every employee must be committed to the safety program. In any operation, it is important to work safely and have procedures and contingency plans in case of emergencies. Safety and communication procedures are established for every job, and personnel are fully instructed on protocol. The following details our philosophy to ensure the safety of all involved:

  • Safety starts at the top.
  • Chain of command must be clearly identified.
  • The safety philosophy of our partners must be clearly identified and safe work procedures developed in compliance.
  • All personnel is required to participate, but each and every employee has the right and obligation to refuse to dangerous work.
  • Trained first aid personnel must be present on each work site.
  • First aid equipment and fire extinguishers must be present in an identified location in each commercial vehicle and on site.
  • All personnel must know the location and have access to local emergency facilities.
