Diamond Drilling Contractors
Health & Safety Guidelines

When it comes to diamond drilling, safety is always the top priority. As professional contractors in the industry, we always follow the necessary guidelines to ensure the well-being of both ourselves and those around us. 

Assessing the risks involved in the diamond drilling process is the first step towards creating a safe working environment. By identifying potential hazards such as electrical and fire risks, you can take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents from happening. Additionally, considering the proximity of other workers and equipment that may be affected by the drilling is essential. By taking the time to assess and mitigate these risks, we are setting ourselves up for success and ensuring a safe and productive work environment.

Diamond drilling is an intricate process that requires precision and expertise. Our strict adherence to health and safety guidelines not only protects our employees but also builds trust and confidence among our clients.

Operating a Diamond Drill

The use of appropriate equipment is also crucial to diamond drilling safety guidelines.

Our equipment is inspected before each use and maintained to ensure it is in good working condition and safe to use. 

Before starting each job we carry out a series of checks to ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.  Another crucial check to carry out is the vacuum seal. This seal ensures that dust and debris are effectively collected during drilling, preventing them from being released into the air and posing a health hazard.  We ensure that we are using the appropriate equipment for the job at hand. Different materials require different types of drills.

Personal Protective Equipment

Another important aspect of diamond drilling safety guidelines is the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). We wear appropriate clothing, gloves, eye protection, and respiratory protection. The use of ear defenders may also be necessary, as diamond drilling can produce high levels of noise.

In addition to PPE, we provide extensive training for our team on how to operate diamond drills safely. This includes understanding the equipment, knowing how to handle it correctly, and understanding the risks involved in using it. 

In an Emergency

We have a clear plan for emergency procedures in place in case of an accident or incident. All workers should be familiar with the plan and know how to respond in case of an emergency. 

Our regular training sessions help ensure that everyone is prepared in case of an emergency.
