ALBRIGHT & WILSON EMERGENCY DEMOLITION WORKS, AVONMOUTH WORKS, BRISTOL
The project arose as an emergency response to our client’s request following a chemical fire.
Trained operatives were immediately deployed, along with specialist plant, to carry out on the spot assessments of structures including tracing of pipework and assessments of existing storage tanks prior to the safe demolition and removal of buildings which included plant items and clean up operations in a highly volatile area.
The work had to be executed around a partially burnt out road tanker, which contained a large quantity of highly flammable material, located within the part burnt out, structurally unsafe building.
Extreme caution was exercised as the work proceeded to take into account the safety of the remainder of the manufacturing site, which continued production, it’s occupants and road users. The work on site was co-ordinated by Albright & Wilson personnel, the Health and Safety Executive and Connell Brothers Ltd.
Due to the highly volatile and combustible materials, specific Method Statements and Risk Assessments had to be compiled on site by our on site Contracts Director and Site Supervisor for every aspect of the project, to enable the work to proceed safely and speedily. Permits to work were issued prior to execution of the works. All methodology had to be assessed, compiled and approved on site.
The project included for licensed disposal of various contaminants and materials to specialist tip facilities.
The project was completed in November 1996 without incident or injury and to the satisfaction of Albright & Wilson and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
