Summit Drilling has been accident free since the company’s inception. The health and safety of all employees and onsite personnel is our top priority and we ensure all employees adhere to our Occupational Health and Safety Guidelines. We ensure that our equipment receives scheduled maintenance checks and always transport repair equipment in case of onsite need.
We take great care and are dedicated to minimizing our environmental impact and promoting sustainability in all our business endeavours. As our work effects both surface and underground environments we strive to ensure all equipment, lubricants, and onsite materials are environmentally sound and all industrial debris is dealt with responsibly.
Summit Drilling adheres to the Canadian Diamond Drilling Association’s proposed business principles and practices. We believe that working towards a healthy, safe, and sustainable future is the best business policy.
We must respect the past, and mistrust the present, if we wish to provide for the safety of the future.
