Ensuring the Safety of Employees and the Environment

Gregory Drilling is a drug-free and Safety First! company that places safety as our top value. Our employees undergo drug and alcohol testing upon hire, as well as post-incident, for reasonable suspicion, and random selection, as determined by our third party Medical Resource Officer (MRO).

Each employee undergoes extensive professional and safety training, helping to ensure our crews and our equipment are in compliance with all relevant regulations and minimizing risk on project sites.

All equipment is inspected daily to guarantee it is in proper working condition and does not pose a danger to the safety of workers or the environment. Jim Pender, the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) officer at Gregory Drilling, has extensive experience with OSHA, MSHA, DOT, and other client-specific regulatory requirements.

Investing In the Best Equipment
to Insure Employee and Environmental Safety

Gregory Drilling invests heavily to ensure clean, safe work sites. We own state-of-the-art equipment to enable us to safely drill any job in any soil conditions. Every piece of equipment is regularly maintained by our fleet mechanics to ensure it is ready for the job. One example of our investment in safety is our mud recycling systems. We use our fleet of mud recycling systems to contain all drill cuttings and drilling mud. We utilize these mud systems to contain our drill cuttings to a hopper and transport them to a controlled staging area, keeping your site clean and maintaining a safe working environment for everyone on the job site.

Gregory Drilling has a core crew of employees that have been with us for a minimum of two years; many have been with us for more than five years.
