Safe contractor accreditation has been approved for our operations.

Medium Risk Confined Spaces
Where there are access issues; a realistic expectation of encountering a specific risk; possible introduction of specified risks during the work activity. Working without an attached rescue line. Escape Set (Self Rescue) breathing apparatus required to be taken into medium risk.

High Risk Confined Spaces
A high risk confined space exists when there is a specified hazard that cannot be controlled or eliminated. Difficult entry and exit. Wearing of self-contained or line fed full breathing apparatus always in high risk.
