Loss Prevention Schemes are used to prevent or reduce losses using behavior-based tools and proven management techniques.  Operators use these tools as part of their daily routines.
Behavioral based studies require regular observation of individuals carrying out their normal activities.  Feedback is given on their performance and areas for improvement.

Job Safety Analysis (J.S.A.)is a document created by Glacier Drilling, which identifies hazards and solutions, for specific tasks.
J.S.A.'s can be provided upon request, prior to the start of a job. We are also capable of constructing field documents when unsuspected tasks are encountered.
