We take great pride in our extensive array of drilling rig and construction machinery. Every piece of Technical HDD equipment is held to a high operating standard and subject to extensive mechanical scrutiny. Technical HDD utilizes real-time GPS monitoring systems within all in-field equipment allowing us to manage machinery for maintenance scheduling, compliance activity or driving infractions, and to pinpoint locations.
Our Preventative Maintenance Program works to ensure that all of our equipment is properly maintained and that our workers, the public and the environments in which we work are never endangered. Measures are in place to control hazards, define operational procedures and maintain on-going front-line communication between our mechanics and field supervisors. Our safe work practices and policies dictate regular inspection of all vehicles, tools, machines and equipment. All operators must complete mandatory walk around inspections, pre-starts and log entries prior to any work commencement.
