The annual BHP Iron Ore HSEC Awards were held on Thursday 20th July, and McKay Drilling won the Contractor HSEC award for the innovative development of our Hands-Free drills.

General Manager Brenton Wallace, along with other members from the Leadership team Aaron Earl, Johnathan Taitt and Gregory Stevenson attended the awards and represented the company.

Winning this award is great recognition for all of the hard work our employees have put in.  From the development phase, to the time the technology arrived, troubleshooting and operating to get the drills to where they are today, everyone should be very proud of how successful this innovation has been for the business.

McKay’s will continue to develop not only the diamond drills, but the RC drills as well. We look forward to the success of the business during 2017/18, and all of our employees should be proud of the achievements accomplished so far and for the safety culture and positive attitude towards change demonstrated to our clients and the Drilling Industry.
