Confined Space Silo Cleaning

Confined Space Silo Cleaning

We have been tasked to clean a number of internal double skin silo containing polypropylene.

We were given the task by a Blue Chip Automotive Company that makes the cockpit for the new  BMW MINI which is due out soon,

After RAMS (Risk Assessment & Method Statement) and a SSOW (Safe System Of Work)agreed .....our Specialist Confined Space Entry Team set up the method of entry .....which consisted of  abseiling into the silos with a rescue system consisting a tripod and winch.

A rescue scenario was also performed ...... 1 minute from base to exit using the tripod/winch.

Recording Air Monitor readings on a 5 minute basis in accordance with our SSOW.
