Importantly he will explain the health and safety factors to be appreciated when using them and working around them.
Ruaraidh McKinnon, Business Manager at RSK Raw will discuss when to use a drill rig as part of a ground investigation strategy, monitoring well installation, environmental sampling and other considerations such as noise, vibration and of course the space needed to use them safely.
