Provision of Access

Unlike most ‘construction sites’, CRL Surveys generally operates within ‘open’ environments, with 3rd parties, including members of the public and their property in close proximity.  We take great care to ensure separation of our activities and to ensure the Health, Safety and Welfare of the public and their property.  Our operatives are New Roads and Streetworks trained, to appropriate levels, to ensure the best possible cordoning, lighting and guarding.

We can arrange appropriate streetworks permits and permissions from local authorities, for most locations, and use recognised, accredited, specialists for the design, installation, maintenance and removal of more complex traffic management, e.g. for trunk roads and motorways, and access to Network Rail property (we do have operatives trained to Personal Track Safety or PTS standards).

Inspection, Assessment and Structural Investigation in many situations requires the provision of access up to difficult to get at locations.

CRL Surveys operatives are trained properly to erect, move, maintain and dismantle mobile scaffold towers and the like, to the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association Limited or PASMA standards and also to operate Mobile Elevating Work Platforms or MEWPs to International Powered Access Federation or IPAF standards.

Where required we use industrial roped access techniques following the procedures described within BS7985.

All access equipment will carry appropriate certification and is regularly inspected.

Inspection, Assessment and Structural Investigation sometimes requires access into enclosed or confined spaces. CRL Surveys operatives are trained to City and Guilds standards, to Level 2, for access and working in medium risk confined spaces, including the use of escape breathing apparatus and the functions of a ‘Top-Man’.

In Short, we can get to it, safely and effectively.
