Confined Space entry techniques form part of HRS Services’ catalogue of Inspection & Maintenance services across UK infrastructure. Our technicians are highly trained working in confined spaces which means they can operate safely in even the most challenging environments. We are able to deploy teams into areas such as tunnel shaft and bridge voids which would otherwise be very difficult to access in order to gather asset data for our clients.

Confined Spaces – Why choose HRS Services?

HRS Services employs IRATA trained difficult access technicians with the experience and capability to work in confined spaces and at height. We have extensive experience working in culverts, risers and numerous industrial situations where risks of engulfment, entrapment or poor ventilation are present. We have provided our Confined Space Inspection services in spaces such as power stations, under railway lines and highways, within air shafts and more.

Our experience in Confined Space Inspection work includes:

Confined Spaces
  • Condition Surveys
  • Difficult Access Maintenance Works
  • Dimensional Surveys
  • Material Testing
  • Principal and General Inspections
  • Rail Bridge and Shaft Examinations
  • Safety Supervision
  • Surveys to Tunnels, Pits, Culverts and Chambers

HRS Services will manage your confined space project through desk based hazard assessments, site visits and a highly trained site team. We have the capability to undertake both general and principal inspections of culverts, masts and gantries to BD63/17 (previously BD62/07).

Confined Space Trained Ecologists

HRS Services also offers a range of Ecological Assessment services for existing structures and those in development. Our fully trained ecologists can enter confined areas to survey for protected species (such as bats). Determining if species are present at an early stage can reduce project delays and associated costs. Where required, we can also develop mitigation strategies for protected species.

Our Track Record

Our experience of working in confined space areas includes:

  • The unblocking of slurry spraying jets inside a flue gas de-sulphurisation power station
  • The inspection of numerous culverts running beneath roads and railway lines
  • The inspection of railway tunnel air shafts countrywide
