A confined space is a place which is of an enclosed nature (though not always entirely) and requires specialised confined space contractors such as CSC Services. Confined space working brings with it the risk of serious injury or death. This can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby such as:
CSC Services (Confined Space Contractor Services) are experienced confined space contractors with many years of knowledge accumulated whilst working on UK water authority, Power and Nuclear Power Station contracts. CSC Services have worked on countless confined space contracts.
As experienced confined space contractors we can also work with specialist third party entry/rescue teams to cover or support confined space works.
Our teams all have CSCS cards, EUSR Water cards, Confined Space Certificates and are BSVR (Baseline Security Vetting Register) and CTC (counter terrorism check) vetted as a minimum. All operatives hold SSPC Train the Painter – Gold level accreditation which covers protective coating application, spray painting and abrasive blast cleaning. CSC Services are also members of the Concrete Repair Association.
CSC Services removed and replaced air pad parts at the base of a lime silo at Glengap Water Treatment Works. Supported by Mines Rescue Service, CSC Services 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. The Hydrated and Quicklime in the silo posed a serious health risk. Following careful planning to produce a safe system of work and wearing the appropriate respiratory device and approved PPE CSC Service operatives were able to remove and replace the filters.
As confined space specialists CSC Services were recently asked to perform an internal coatings refurbishment job at Relic Service Reservoir for Scottish Water.
