Just how important is good house keeping on a rig? _______________ Its so easy to get engrossed with drilling activities, that we sometimes forget to make sure no tool is carelessly lying around and keep the rig floor clean. This is called good rig housekeeping. _______________ The benefits of daily practising good housekeeping goes beyond safety issues.
It raises the morale of the rig crew, saves costs from wastage of materials and saves time since everything is already in place before they are needed and space is properly managed. _____________________ Infact, good housekeeping actually reduces rig downtime and optimises the drilling process. Good housekeeping should not be something we do only once in a while, it should be encouraged all the time.
