Drill rig guarding

Under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment (PUWER) Regulations 1998, it is a requirement that the rotating components of a drill string be protected to prevent access to the danger zone. This includes inclined drilling rigs and those used for rotary piling.

RPA have considerable experience in site auditing against the required guidance as outlined in PUWER, and we follow accepted HSE interpretation of the application of PUWER in the drilling sector.
