Divesafe-UK has a team of dedicated professionals who specialise in all aspects of confined space entry, rescue and recovery, engineering works and maintenance. We also carry out structural inspections including remote CCTV inspections.
Working in confined spaces refers to a space which by design has limited access and exit and can pose a potential risk to those working in them. A confined space can have poor natural light, low natural ventilation, toxic or explosive gases, free flowing debris and extreme temperatures and quite often will require working in water.
We are able to carry out structural inspections with our confined space entry team using industrial rope access if necessary. Where man entry is not possible CCTV can be used with our ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) enabling us to access beyond the access point prior to entry. It also enables us to survey pipes, voids, culverts, fresh water services and restrictive areas where man entry may not be possible.
Health & Safety is paramount to Divesafe-UK and all necessary risk assessments are carried out before deciding how to safely carry out the required tasks. We will identify all the present and potential hazards, assess all the risks and identify which precautions to take. Consideration is given to the task in hand as well as the working environment and which tools are required to safely carry out the task. A dedicated professional team will then carry out the required work. All our personnel are fully trained in first aid should an emergency arise.
Divesafe-UK are fully aware of all aspects of health and safety including:
Divesafe-UK have undertaken numerous tasks of confined space entries to water courses and culverts to alleviate flooding in key areas mainly around the North of England.
This involved working closely with Jackson-Hyder Civil Engineering as part of the WEM (Water & Environment Management) Framework.
We have recently removed 3 bridges from the River Calder in Sowerby Bridge which had collapsed during the recent high floods.
