If the results of the Risk Assessment identify any possibility of serious injury or stress from working in the confined space, then the Confined Spaces Regulations shall apply.
The Gunite group often work within structures that are classed as confined space and or difficult and restricted access. Our teams are fully trained to High Risk Confined Space Training C&G 6150-03 as a minimum with a number of operatives trained in Rescue procedures. Gunite have the in-house capability to provide its own trained and experienced stand-by confined space rescue teams.
Our experienced and competent managers and supervisors are trained in how to assess and manage our works within low, medium, and high risk confined spaces.
The remedial repair and maintenance of concrete, brick, and metal structures that Gunite carry out are often within difficult and restricted access situations, therefore within our infrastructure department confined space training and working at height is mandatory.
The Gunite group can also provide rope access, suspended cradles and MEWPs as alternative access solutions for short duration works and the surveying of structures.
