The cost and, at times, hassle of containment can challenge the best contractors. Everyone wants to serve as a good steward of the site, but how do we do that safely and economically? On episode 119 of Ask Brock, host and drill trainer Brock Yordy talks about planning containment strategies.

“We should all have containment in our pickup trucks, on our service trucks and enough containment on our rig that we can start some triage,” Yordy says.
