What is a Toughneck?

A Toughneck is smart, professional and strong. Toughnecks are committed to the job and their team. They are resourceful and resilient, finding innovative ways to get the job done. The Toughnecks are a team of the best in the business.

Toughnecks understand what it means to work hard. They work on drilling rigs, service rigs, snubbing and coil tubing units, and in camps across western Canada. They work long hours, in physically demanding positions but are paid well with great benefits.

Toughnecks are proud professionals.
Toughnecks work at Precision Drilling.
