SAFER G. // Safe-guarding your most valuable asset.


SAFER G is the award-winning, self-checking, sensor activated safety device that protects people in the 'danger zone' of rotary rigs.

Revolutionising the way in which the rotating parts of rotary drilling rigs are guarded, SAFER G uses state of the art sensor technologies to detect people entering the 'danger zone'. Once a person is detected, SAFER G immediately switches off rotation to keep your people safe.

  • Improves rig productivity.
  • Improves personnel protection.
  • Complies with all safety and machinery legislation.
  • Complies with EN 16228 Parts 1 and 2.
  • Fully compatible with all rotary rig types.
  • Creates a safer work environment.
  • Carries FULL CE marking as a safety device.

Simpler. Safer. Faster. Smarter. Greener.

How SAFER G can help you.

A considerable amount of time in the research and development phase of SAFER G was spent getting the balance right between being able to sense physical persons, whilst maintaining the ability to discount things like muds, liquids and dust particles kicked up in the act of drilling.

We have struck this balance and your productivity can benefit.

SAFER G is a revolutionary way to guard the rotating-drill string, ensure driller safety and improve on-site productivity. It's quicker, smarter and it speeds up adding barrels, casing or rods to your drill-string by removing the need to open and close a physical guard. This leaves you far more time to do the things that really earn your company money - drilling boreholes and taking samples!

Technical Details and Information.

  • SAFER G removes the need for gated type guards by providing a safe-guarded zone.
  • SAFER G provides a safety zone between 0.5m from the floor to 1.8m from the floor where operators cannot enter.
  • SAFER G cannot be easily bypassed or disabled.
  • Integration of self-checking diagnostics system which ensures the 'failure to safe' mechanism is present at all times.
  • SAFER G can detect an object moving anywhere within a safe-guarded zone.
  • Ability to differentiate between small and large objects (muds, liquids and dust particles vs. people).
