Scope of Works

  • The fully trained confined space team set up at the entry point with a tripod and winch in place, gas monitors and entry board filled out
  • A gas monitor was used to continually monitor the LEL levels around the tank and take readings and recorded every 15 mins ensuring that works were carried out in the safest possible conditions
  • The remaining fuel and washings was uplifted by a vacuum tanker and the confined space operative entered the tank to clean to a white rag standard.
  • Once cleaned the team replaced the lid and demobilised the site set up ready to handover to the client.
