Health and Safety is at the forefront of all our operations and is a primary consideration both during the planning process and while on site.
We ensure that all our employees are fully trained to use our equipment and to carry out their work in the safest manner. Health and Safety is a primary consideration starting at the recruitment process for new employees and spreads throughout the company, highlighted as an extremely important element to each individual's role and responsibility.
All crews are provided with appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) and provided instruction on how to use it as well as why they must use it.
Briefings prior to the commencement of drilling as well as daily site meetings, keeping everyone informed, are also an important part of our processes.
In addition to our employees being fully trained and able to work safely, we also realize our equipment needs to be well maintained. To ensure reliability and the safe operation of our machines, we have our own in house mechanic who carries our regular inspections and performs preventative maintenance procedures. This not only ensures our equipment operates correctly and safely but minimizes downtime and allows us to get on with providing our service to you, safely.
Tundra has proven its commitment to ensure that practical and effective measures are in place to protect the health and safety of our employees, clients, the environment and the public in all areas of our operations. This is demonstrated by our outstanding safety record of no Lost Time Incidents.
