The first rule of confined space entry is that if manual entry
can be avoided then it should be.
With this rule in mind, when a manned entry is unavoidable, with careful planning, state of the art equipment and highly trained operatives, the project will be completed safely and efficiently.
We have AP2 trained teams & 6150/03 trained teams for high-risk
confined space operations.
For the past 15 years we have worked closely with Helios Safety
& Rescue to ensure that we are kept abreast of current legislation
and to refine safe working methodology on our more complex projects.
All of these protocols were implemented on a recent project for
Clancy Docwra/Southern Water, when attempts to remotely survey a
700m x 2.5m sewerage gravity trunk main failed and operational conditions
dictated that manned entry was required.
We safely implemented a methodology that resulted in teams of operatives
traversing the main in inflatable kayaks, with live recoding CCTV
rig and hard-wired boat to surface communications.
