Driller » Overview


Drillers assemble, position, and operate drilling rigs and related equipment to extract ore, liquids, or gases from the earth. They sometimes dismantle, move, and reassemble drilling rigs and accessory plants. They oversee assembly of the drilling tools and operate the drilling and hoisting equipment. Drillers need to be fit and strong for dealing with heavy machinery and have an understanding of health and safety on sites. They work alongside other machinery operators, miners, supervisors and engineers. They usually work outdoors on sites.
