Within the confined spaces of underground or tunnel environments, the creation of dust and exposure to diesel fumes during engineering works causes problems with site productivity, potential risk to the health of staff, and operational hazards for the client following completion of the works.
We have spent many years at the forefront of safety research developing client-focused solutions and we’re extremely proud of the results – including innovations which now enable clients to deliver track engineering with minimum dust, which amazes some of our newer clients. In addition we’re RISQS qualified and audited, validating our proven record in this highly specialised field.
Following a detailed assessment of natural or local ventilation proposed plant and tunnel restrictions, we focus on global measures to protect the entire workforce. We will always ensure space and site conditions are optimal for the project to be delivered on time.
- Ventilation Strategies may include :
- Fan ventilation
- Platform screening
- Sheeting and/or tunnel plugs
- Provision and Installation of Temporary Systems
- Systems Management
Our staff are experienced in guaranteeing systems remain functional, and can make necessary alterations as site conditions or plant density changes.
- Gas Monitoring
Monitors are placed throughout the work site to constantly check gas presence and levels, with alarms set to ensure warnings occur before any risk to safety.
