The Importance of Workplace Safety

During the technical process of core hole drilling , it is important to prevent all the possible hazards and to increase the safety through the moments of maintaining the drilling equipment. Core drilling actions usually generate high level of reparable dust with silica content in it, which can result in serious breathing difficulties depending on the level of exposure. Personal protective equipment and protective apparel not only prevents injuries, they can also save lives. It is important always to protect yourself when you are working alone, in a group or sounded by other people.

Wearing protection will also decrease the human errors, especially when using machines that can hurt your eyes and can leave stains to your clothes and body. Some processes can be very dangerous, so being aware of the working areas means to know everything in a case of an accident and how to avoid it. This review describes the potentials of the modern equipment and technical processes; that can lower the risk by shielding the dangerous concrete operations using professional equipment. 

Consequently, it is more than important that certain type of protective equipment can be worn by the operators to increase the safety for drillers when they are operating with the drills. The selection includes: protective hat, specially designed glasses, comfy fitting clothes, hearing protection, a pair of gloves and sunglasses. Additional items can be worn depending on the type of projects being performed and the location of the projects. Before everything, ensure that all the protective equipment is manufactured with high quality without any issues. However, it is not recommended to wear loose fitting clothes or custom made hats due to the dust you will be exposed through the process.

At this point of view, our core drilling company must ensure that every task is performed under the required standards. Before everything we provide training related to core drill bits and also training how to operate on a risky project when an injury may occur. Finally, even the most experienced staff needs regular training for health, safety and security which is one of the top priorities for our business. Safety policies and procedures may also include documentation, safety inspections and injury reporting.

Concrete cutting can be a dirty job and in a case of working injuries, one should immediately call for help before anything else happens.

Following the safety rules and wearing protective apparel is required to keep the drillers safe during the dangerous tasks. The protective clothing, helmets and gloves are the first aspect related to the working conditions. But this doesn’t mean you are fully protected, not for a second. You must pay attention to lock the drill machine when you are not using it. You must not operate with machines if you don’t know how to start the process, or you are not specialized for it. Before everything, do not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. No matter how good your electrical skills are, do not repair the machine by yourself.
Remember and practice these simple rules and safety strategies so you can avoid all the possible hazards and stay productive during the project.
