New BDA Guidance on the Operation of Cable Percussion Rigs & Equipment

Cable Percussion boreholes are one of the primary methods of forming exploratory holes in soils in the UK and form a staple part of most site investigations. The British Drilling Association (BDA) has issued a new Guidance Document titled, ‘The Operation of Cable Percussion Rigs & Equipment,’ an update to its oldest publication. This document provides guidance on operational, technical, health & safety and environmental issues and will be of interest to anyone involved in operating, procuring, organising and supervising cable percussion (shell & auger) boring.  For more information on how to obtain a copy please click here.
