Civil Engineering Safety rescue teams are called out on a variety of different jobs within many different sectors. No job is too big or too small, we have teams of all sizes covering a range of qualifications and experiences. Please read more for a little insight into what we are doing this week.
We are now into the second week of the Ely Power Station annual shut down, a huge project that we attend each year and provide 24-hour cover for fourteen days. During these two weeks, the power station undergoes a big clean-up and the whole place is checked to see if any repairs need doing.
Civil Engineering Safety sends an eight man team to attend the site during the day and a four man team during the night. Ensuring the safety of our rescue team and the members on the site is of the up-most importance, which is why we send our teams in larger numbers.
At the beginning of this week, a mock rescue took place at the Elean Power Station, but our team had no knowledge that this was a mock. They were lead to believe that this was the real deal, and they provided an efficient and professional service even when under such intense pressure to keep everyone safe. Whilst they were out on a normal working day the team was informed that someones who was in a confined space had suffered a head injury and needed recovering. The team reacted instantly and went into action to complete the recovery before being made aware that it was a mock test. They did a fantastic job!
