TAKING CARE OF TOMORROW STARTS TODAY
Respect for the environment and stakeholders is one of our key values, and so we’re committed to upholding high environmental standards everywhere we work by minimizing our land impact, reducing water consumption, and restoring sites. When we start a new project, we begin by identifying and controlling the environmental impact associated with all our services. We then work through each project with specific environmental goals in mind, monitoring and evaluating our environmental performance on an ongoing basis, and empowering staff to meet these standards and minimize our environmental impact every step of the way.
Our Environmental Management System guides our business activities, meeting (and exceeding) all relevant legislation and regulations, with continuous monitoring and evaluation to ensure that we are doing everything possible to minimize our impact on the environment. Hy-Tech is proud to hold the following certifications:
- ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System
- Canadian Diamond Drilling Association’s Drilling Excellence Certification (DEC)
Our commitment to environmental stewardship has inspired many innovations at Hy-Tech, including the design of our unique water management system which reduces water consumption by up to 90% per day. We value the land we’re working on, and so we’re very proud of our small and lightweight drill which minimizes our environmental footprint.
Our Drill Reference Manual gives step-by-step instructions from setting up a job, to drilling, to demobilizing the drill to ensure that our crew follow the best practices to protect the sites that we are working on. We work closely with our clients to protect all of the natural resources close to the drill site. We review the environmental aspects of each project during crew and visitor orientations, to ensure that they are aware of the risks, rules and environmental best work practices associated with each contract.
We’re committed to continuously improve our environmental practices so that we can set the standard of excellence in diamond drilling, providing peace of mind to our stakeholders.
Hy-Tech's safety and environmental practices are fantastic. Safety hasn't been an issue. Hy-Tech's equipment is always well maintained.
