Ventilation and Environmental Monitoring Services
Engineering work within confined spaces, including disused tunnels, can frequently generate levels of dust and pollution, which exceed the Workplace Exposure Limits listed in HSE document EH40. These spaces can also present their own inherent biological hazards that must be considered when designing a suitable ventilation scheme and safe system of work. Factair has extensive experience in the design of innovative ventilation systems. The company has developed and installed a varied range of temporary systems at a diverse number of locations including: London Underground, theatres, disused tunnels and underground fuel tanks.
Whatever form your confined space comes in Factair can help you develop a safe system of work. For the more complicated projects this includes an initial site survey to assess the hazards and potential pollutants present. When this assessment is combined with the activities being undertaken in the space, the number of air changes required per hour can be established.
Factair can provide equipment on a hire only basis or as a complete installed set-up with atmospheric condition monitoring and environmental report at the end of the project. Factair is a RISQS audited supplier to the rail industry and its rail tunnel ventilation equipment is Network Rail approved.
