Castle Drilling have been utilising cloud-based storage for all systems for some time, which enables up to date client and employee access at all times. While in the field, each drilling crew have a robust iPad which has an integrated daily drill reporting system that is trailered for CDC requirements.
Take 5s, rig inductions, site inspection checklist and pre-start forms are also available through the application. All forms are automatically forwarded via email to nominated email addresses upon completion and approval. Employee forms such as timesheets and leave forms are quickly emailed to administration staff. The system ensures positive and effective communications between the office and the field.
Also, the entire safety management system is available in digital format including SDS and SWP as well as maintenance records and schedules. Operation and part manuals of the plant can be accessed quickly and easily by drill crews, and efficient use of order forms and stocktakes gives a heightened level of support to operations.
