Open excavations? Mitigation measures such as a non-intrusive magnetometer survey not viable?
A 1st Line Defence UXO Specialist can come on site to support and monitor the works. Our engineers effectively act as a banksman, working closely with the machine operator or ground worker to ensure that excavations are undertaken in a controlled manner and to provide fast response and identification 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. Specialists also provide UXO Safety Awareness Briefings to all new ground personnel.
Direct, on-site support is the most common, practical and effective way of ensuring the safety of your ground operatives.
We have engineers with various specialist training and qualifications to ensure that we can provide support to a diverse number of projects requiring specialist knowledge. 1st Line Defence accreditations include BESC, PTS, SSSTS/SMSTS, NEBOSHH, WICS, Asbestos safety and more.
