At FIN Maintenance we consider the health, safety and welfare of our staff to be our top priority which is why we operate a zero incident policy. This is supported by a comprehensive training programme, tool box talks and safety bulletins. We engage with our clients to understand their specific requirements and expectations, which we incorporate within our policies and procedures to ensure full compliance.
Our maintenance personnel have City & Guilds High Risk Confined Space Training and are experienced in entry into wet wells to carry out inspections, maintenance and upgrade works.
Job specific detailed risk assessments and method statements are prepared including communications protocol and rescue plans. Our safety equipment includes: PPE Safety harnesses, lanyards, Safety cages, Gas monitors (O2, CO, LEL, H2SO4) Breathing air escape sets, Intrinsically safe lighting, Intrinsically safe radio communications and Cantilevered edge protection in accordance with BS EN13374
At FIN we have an outsourced Lone Worker System which provides speed dial panic alarm and allows our employees to set alarm times in advance. In the event of an alarm our emergency contacts are immediately informed and can access voice message and location information to direct an emergency response.
Clients can be confident that when a FIN employee is working alone on site they are compliant with Lone Worker policy. Our crews regularly test the system and reports of all text and voice alarm settings and tests are available for compliance audit.
Communication is key to keeping health and safety at the fore on all our projects. FIN regularly issues safety bulletins to all our employees on key safety issues and to advise of incidents that have occurred across the globe. Tool box talks are held to reinforce information in the Safety Bulletins.
