All positions in the service rig industry require the following certifications:

  • H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide)
  • Standard First Aid
  • Common Safety Orientation (CSO)
  • TDG

If you are new to the service rig industry, don’t stress – the training related to your new position will be arranged during orientation. 

Our rig crews have five positions: Manager, Driller, Derrickhand, and Sr. & Jr. Floorhands. Shifts typically start with the crew meeting at a central location and driving together to the site. A service rig crew’s typical day is between 4 and 12 hours. Generally, crews live local to the nearest base or rig yard. The crew will live in camps or hotels when the work is in remote areas or away from the base.

We try to accommodate everybody’s schedules, so everyone receives balanced work hours and rest.

In Canada, work in the oil and gas well-servicing industry is seasonal. Service rig equipment is heavy and can only move when the ground is solid. Most wells are drilled or serviced in the winter or summer when the ground is frozen or dry and provides a solid base. During the spring and fall, the ground and most roads can be damaged if heavy equipment runs over the top. For this reason, road bans are issued to prevent heavy equipment from operating in certain areas.

Employees should be prepared to have up to 4 to 6 weeks off during break-up (sometimes longer). Many employees may qualify for employment insurance benefits during this time. If you don’t qualify for unemployment benefits, it is important to save enough money to last during the break.

DHC Well Servicing will have maintenance opportunities for our workers during the break-up period.
