A confined space is a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen). – HSE.
This includes locations where boreholes and wells exist which, in particular, historically were constructed at the base of deep chambers which are considered a confined space and a risk to human health and safety, anyone entering a borehole chamber like this is putting themselves and others at risk as a result.
As part of our on-going commitment to Health and Safety our staff are trained to enter confined spaces and ensure that even in difficult circumstances boreholes and wells can be investigated, assessed and worked on whilst ensuring that everyone is kept safe at the same time.
If your borehole or well is considered a confined space contact us and we’re sure we can help you get the work done.
