Under contract, we can guarantee mobilisation of fully trained and qualified personnel, equipment and machinery to any site under a state of emergency. We aim to be on site within 4 hours, although time scales vary depending on the location of the site.
Our most recent example of an emergency call out which we had to attend was in November 2017. We received a call from Gas Board Personnel declaring a state of emergency at a site around 25 miles from our office.
We were asked to supply an excavator suitable for excavating a high pressure gas main, a suitable compressor for the emergency and fully equipped welfare facilities.
Once the alarm has been raised, a safety briefing was held with our available team. The team were told the type of emergency, the equipment and machinery required and that welfare facilities were required. Following this briefing, the team loaded up relevant equipment and PPE into vehicles and set off to site to meet with Gas Board Personnel and set up site.
Our Office Team organised for our excavator to be transported to site as soon as possible and a fully qualified operator was sent to assist our haulage contractor do so.
On arrival at site, our men met with Gas Board Personnel and received instruction regarding the issue and Health and Safety procedures. They then deployed site safety signage, set up a suitable welfare area and car park within the hour of the alarm being raised. The area was fenced off to prevent any unauthorised access and the team, alongside Gas Board Personnel assessed the works required to ensure the site was returned to a safe condition.
The excavator and compressor then arrived on site where they were assessed and checked by Gas Board Personnel and W Turnbull Personnel to ensure they were safe for use. All personnel were then happy for works to commence and the issue was resolved and the site made safe by 5pm that day
