Confined Space Rescue Team For Hire In Hobart
A confined space is an area that is entirely or partly closed. It should not be occupied by people continuously. Confined spaces are dangerous to people working there because of various possible hazards. For this reason, before undertaking confined space rescue in Hobart, the Australian Construction team undergoes the appropriate confined space training.
Moreover, they use suitable confined space equipment. As a result, this equipment helps in essential procedures like entry, exit, retrieval, escape, fall prevention and more.
Features of a confined space
Mainly a confined space has restricted or limited exits or entry. Also, it can be designed in a manner that restricts rescue, first aid or evacuation. It also has restrictions on other emergency response procedures. Examples of a confined space are:
- Utility holes
- Water supply towers
- Utility vaults
Confined space hazards
It is dangerous to work in confined spaces. It especially risky if the workers are unaware of the nature and size of their dangers. Because of this, Australian Construction appreciates the importance of carrying out a risk assessment. Therefore, we carry out this assessment when getting ready to work in a confined space.
Common hazards in confined space
1. Air quality
Inadequate air quality because of deficient oxygen or poisonous substances is dangerous to the worker. You cannot always depend on natural ventilation for the maintenance of health and safety regulations. For this reason, Australian Construction ensures the worker is safe from chemicals. We also make sure the worker gets enough oxygen.
2. Fire hazards
Fire can affect a confined space adversely. The reason is there is restricted escape means. Moreover, there is a lot of exposure to smoke and heat. As a result, we carefully consider fire safety. Given this, we implement methods of eliminating risk.
3. Trapping or crushing hazards
When working in an underground confined space, a slight movement in the surface can be shattering. Because of this, risk mitigation is crucial. Consequently, we always equip workers with the correct personal protective equipment during confined space rescue in Hobart.
4. High noise levels
In confined spaces, noise can be significantly damaging. As a result, hearing loss or severe hearing damage occurs if workers do not have enough protection using earmuffs and earplugs.
Confined space equipment
Various vital personal protective equipment is essential. For example, dusk masks, safety goggles and protective masks are crucial. Coupled with this, we use the appropriate equipment for confined space rescue. Australian Construction has the essential safety equipment.
