Health & Safety

MATECO Drilling Company’s corporate Health and Safety Program covers the following topics for our employees:

Medical monitoring

Each employee completes a yearly medical physical that includes a Physician’s Written Opinion to work at hazardous waste sites and to wear a respirator. This physical also includes a DOT physical card.

MATECO Drilling Company’s crew teams complete a Daily Safety Inspection Form prior to the operation of the equipment each day. This form asks very specific questions about the condition and safety of the equipment.
