Safe and Effective Working

Confined Space Contractors

At CSC Services, (Confined Space Contract Services) we are specialists in confined space working, applied within our core services of concrete repairs, and specialist coatings for structural repair and asset maintenance.

A confined space can be defined as a place of enclosed nature. We are experts in this area with many years of knowledge accumulated whilst working on UK Water Authority and Nuclear Power Station contracts. We have worked on countless challenging confined space contracts.

We offer a one-stop solution for confined space work, providing full refurbishment works to structures including silos, culverts, tunnels, bunds, water towers, vessels and service reservoirs.

What are the risks and hazards?

Working in confined space areas brings a foreseeable risk to workers. This can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby such as lack of oxygen, difficult access or egress, gaseous atmosphere, explosive atmosphere or risk of drowning.

What are our health and safety measurements?

We have a robust training programme with regards to confined space training, using industry-leading training providers and working with specialist third-party entry/rescue teams, who provide a service to retrieve casualties safely and efficiently.  We complete a thorough risk assessment before starting any confined space project to devise a safe system of work and all of our operators have confined space certificates.

NEBOSH-Certified Mark Lemon, Managing Director of CSC Services explains why we invest so heavily in our training:

“Safety is the number one priority at CSC Services, so ensuring all operatives can operate safely in a confined space is essential. The training we use through qualified providers is highly effective because it teaches our teams how to work with each other in such situations. Use of simulated confined spaces allows operatives to apply the techniques and procedures they have learned in a realistic scenario.”

Specialist Confined Space

Our team undertakes extensive specialist confined spacing training and hold specialist City & Guilds certifications allowing them to work in complex and hazardous environments.

Case Study
We removed removed and replaced air pad parts at the base of a lime silo at Glengap Water Treatment Works. Supported by Mines Rescue Service, we used an A-frame, hoist and bosuns chair arrangement to enter the confined space. One of the outlet valves to the silo was removed to improve ventilation with access to the silo through the top of the structure.
