It’s when a UXO Specialist has been deployed directly on-site to support and monitor groundworks, working closely with machine operators and ground personnel.
Our UXO Specialists (who are EOD certified), effectively act as a banksman to make sure that excavations are carried out in a controlled and safe manner – and to provide a fast response to any suspect or suspicious items that are encountered.
Depending on the nature, type and condition of the item, immediate UXO control measures can be put in place.
Direct, on-site support is the most common, practical and effective way of protecting your ground operatives and assets.
We can also provide UXO Safety & Awareness Training to all new personnel joining your project.
Our UXO Specialists have a vast amount of experience and hold specialist training and qualifications to make sure we can provide support to a diverse number of projects – on land, marine and overseas.
Our engineers hold accreditations including: BESC, PTS, SSSTS/SMSTS, NEBOSHH, WICS, Asbestos safety plus many more.
Get specialist UXO support and clearance for ground investigation works such as boreholes and window samples.
For certain sites, a manual 'Search & Clear' operation is the most appropriate way of mitigating risk from shallow-buried UXO on your project.
If the is an assessed risk of UXO on your project we strongly recommend Safety & Awareness Training is held with staff about how to identify the risks.
We offer a wide range of professional services and technology to assess, survey, mitigate, support and manage the risk of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).
