Confined Space Culvert Inspection

Confined Space Culvert Inspection & Survey

Our Specialist Confined Space Team  have been working in a culvert on The River Tame.

Our Task was to carry out Concrete Inspection and Survey ....this consisted of taking Core Samples, Concrete Sampling, using Cover Meters, Carbonation Testing and using Ferro Scans.

The Confined Space itself held a lot of Risks

Risk of Flood
Presence of Methane from silt disruption.
Depletion of Oxygen from moss & algae growth.
Weils Disease.
Hypothermia.
Noise reverberation.
Rescue

The culvert was also located adjacent to a Petrol Station where there was a potential risk of fuel spillage.

All of the above were covered in depth on our RAMS & SSOW
