Confined Space

WHEN IT COMES TO ACCESSING CONFINED SPACES, WE HAVE THE EXPERTISE AND THE EXPERIENCE.

A confined space is an enclosed or restriced area that presents a risk for health and safety of anyone who enters. Some examples of confined spaces include silos, pipes, boilers, tanks, access shafts, etc.

GRA can access, manage, perform work and provide rescue services in confined spaces. This ensures legislative compliance and the highest standard of care is achieved. We offer the benefit of using rope access systems in confined spaces to replace scaffolding, making the seemingly impossible job, possible.
