Holocene Drilling believes that all accidents and injuries are preventable. Drilling can be a dangerous business and we take the well-being of our employees, clients and the general public seriously. 

All of our field, shop and management employees are current with the requirements of OSHA 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operation and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training and participate in a third party medical surveillance program. Our Job Safety Analysis (JSA) programs are constantly evolving. Management regularly conducts field safety inspections to ensure compliance with our programs and requirements.

Our shop continually maintains and inspects our trucks and equipment to reduce the likelihood of any mechanically caused incidents. We maintain a behavior-based safety culture where each employee is empowered to stop any work task if it is deemed or suspected to be unsafe. 

We are a Drug-Free Business.
