  6. If required, hand dig to a maximum depth of 1.2metres to check for services.
  7. Commence drilling by careful raising and dropping of the drilling tools, taking samples and tests as required.
  8. At no time will the drilling tools be suspended in the air whilst work is carried out underneath them.
  9. When the tools are raised and lowered, the assistant will guide them in a safe manner.
  10. once the required depth has been reached, contact will be made with the client to confirm this depth is correct, any pipe installation and backfill details will be recorded.
