“DrillWest have completed numerous phases of diamond drilling for Independence Group NL over the past year. They have demonstrated a professional attitude and are competent drillers. We have had a good working relationship with DrillWest and will definitely use them again in the future. I would not hesitate in recommending them.”
Senior Geologist, Independence Group NL
Drillwest is staffed by the most experienced and professional drilling industry personnel and our drilling crews are second to none. All employees of Drillwest are required to hold the appropriate vehicle licences and undertake company induction programmes prior to going to site. We ensure that at least one member of each drilling crew holds a current Senior First Aid Certificate and weekly toolbox meetings are held to identify potential hazards and develop control plans to minimise the risks of day to day duties. These regular meetings are an important part of Drillwest’s commitment to the safety of our employees as well as others who work with us.
Onsite activities are led by Operations Manager Kevin Davis. Kevin brings 25 years of drilling industry experience and expertise to Drillwest, with specialist knowledge in a wide variety of drilling techniques including on-land oil and gas and deep hole directional drilling. He travels to site regularly to monitor and oversee drilling programs. This on-site communication with Drillwest crew teams ensures that management continually maintain a hands-on perspective of each job.
Drillwest employees are required to complete ongoing on-site and external training courses to expand their knowledge and skills of the drilling industry.
All Drillwest staff work to the highest standards and ensure they are carrying out work in line with company policies and safety procedures at all times.
