SALT LAKE CITY -- Boart Longyear (www.BoartLongyear.com), the world’s leading provider of integrated drilling services and drilling products, was recognized last week at the Canadian Diamond Drillers Association’s Annual General Meeting in Montreal, Quebec. Among other presentations, Boart Longyear Senior Product Manager, Chris Lambert presented to conference attendees on the advances in down hole technology, and introduced TruCore™ – the first product in a new line of instrumentation tools for Boart Longyear.
During the awards ceremony, Boart Longyear’s Canadian group won two safety awards: the 4th Quarter Safety Achievement award and the 2014 Safety award based on overall safety performance. These awards represent the hard work the management teams, supervisors, and crews put in last year to bring injury rates to an all-time low.
A third award was given for best safety video – the Make it Safe, Make it Personal, Make it Home video was played to the crowd of attendees which brought a round of applause. The video is available on the Boart Longyear YouTube channel.
The Boart Longyear General Manager for the Americas, Terry Kirkey commented, “We are very proud indeed and appreciate all the hard work on the Canadian team to make this possible. It is worth the effort! Also great to get recognized from the industry for the Make it Safe video. It was very well done and our peers obviously agree!”
