Geometric Drilling have been involved in supporting one of their senior rig crew partners who is suffering from illness at present by members of staff organising events in their time off and all proceeds going to the charity. Geometric Drilling are currently working towards ISO14001. They monitor waste from their sites and it is uplifted and disposed of or recycled correctly by an approved contractor. As Geometric Drilling are in the drilling industry they use a number of chemicals and there is a potential for environmental incidents so the standards and procedures they have in place to prevent and counter anything happening far exceed most normal expectations. Geometric Drilling are in the process of working towards ISO 9001 and 14001 so they look and seek to continually improve all procedures and working practices making them cheaper, more efficient and more environmentally friendly. By continuing to strive towards this they are assisting in ensuring a sustainable organisation. Geometric Drilling have a dedicated team in place who deals with local councils from planning applications, through the phase where they are on site and working and to the conclusion of the operation where the area is restored to its former standard, ensuring they have a constant, excellent working relationship
