Environmental Sustainability

J&S Drilling is committed to conducting all operations in a responsible, environmentally sustainable manner. We plan for our Environment to be here for all generations.

To this end, environmentally friendly techniques and products are adopted as they become available, including biodegradable drilling additives and spill kits.

The use of preventative measures and resource recycling has helped to reduce the company’s overall carbon footprint and develop a reputation for responsible, community-oriented management.




Environmental Sustainability Training

J&S Drilling conduct ongoing training in nationally recognised qualifications, units of competency and State recognised courses including: Green card (Dieback Course), Accredited Spill Kit courses and Industry / client specific Environmental Training Programs.

Environmental Sustainability Strategies

J&S Drilling continues its focus on Environmental Sustainability Strategies by installing a 40KWp Solar system and an additional 190,000L rain water tank. This supports existing sustainability strategies and the use of technology to minimise paper-based reporting and records.

For more information on our environmental focus, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


We place a high value on the qualifications and capabilities of our staff. The daily electronic on-line field reporting continues to be a great success story and in 2013 J&S Drilling introduced electronic Verification of Competency (VOC’s) reporting and monitoring.  The real time monitoring allows our field supervisors to manage the VOC’s of their crews ensuring inductions and training checklists can be completed accurately and regularly for all staff.

Through on-going training and assessment, we aim to maintain the highest possible standard of personal development. We are proud of our staff retention rate.

Licensed Drillers

Our drillers are licensed in accordance with the National Drillers Licensing Scheme in WA, NT & QLD. Staff are regularly trained in site and process-specific techniques.

J&S Drilling staff possess full first aid certification, competency based vehicle and mobile plant tickets/licenses and industry endorsements. Our most experienced and qualified field and workshop staff are Certified Workplace Assessors and we conduct Verification of Competency Assessments on our staff utilising inhouse assessment tools.
