Confined Space

Oct. 25, 2013


Confined space work requires the utmost care, preparation and specially trained workmen. Routine maintenance checks on a flour silo showed the need for repairs and it was also decided that a repaint of the inside would take place at the same time. Due to the work being confined space, Andy Andersons Industrial Services (AAIS) was contracted to clean and repaint the silo. Anyone carrying out this work must be confined space and height trained. After much deliberation a plan of action was put in place to carry out the work in the safest possible manner. Using food grade equipment and paint, the work was completed quickly, within the given time schedule and without any problems. The client appreciated the time and care that AAIS took to ensure not only a first class result for them but also that all safety procedures were in place as prescribed by OSH.
