If you have a project that requires diamond core drilling, you may find yourself in need of a core drilling contractor. You should consider all of your drilling companies carefully before deciding on one for the job. Ask the right questions to make sure your company is giving you the most bang for your buck. You want there to be no doubt that the core drilling contractor you choose understands your needs and is capable of carrying out the job. Here are the questions you should ask your core drilling company before hiring.
Can You Get All of the Equipment to the Worksite?
Some worksites are in remote locations that require roads to be built simply to get to the worksite. You should have an understanding of what it takes to access the worksite and speak with your core drilling contractor about how the equipment will get to the right location. Different forms of transportation may be necessary depending on where your worksite is located, and the company you hire has to be capable of getting your gear to the proper destination.
Can You Handle Task Modifications?
Some mineral exploration projects will require tasks to be altered in the middle of the job. The core drilling contractor you hire should understand that task modifications are a possibility and that they have all of the necessary equipment to adapt to these modifications.
Do You Have a Strong Safety Program?
You should only ever consider core drilling companies that have reassuring safety programs. The company you select should abide by all state and federal laws and any local regulations in place. They should also follow directives from DOT, OSHA, EPA, and MSHA. Your contractor should also be a great communicator and ensure that all people involved in the project understand what safety hazards are around the worksite.
The company’s staff should also have an understanding of your own safety standards and complete all of the necessary safety training before they begin working on your project.
Are You Experienced in the Field?
When it comes to picking out a core drilling company, experience is priceless. The contractor you hire should have a wealth of knowledge and experience working on sites like yours. They should also have a list of past clients who are satisfied with their work.
