At Singapore Waterproofing, we ensure that our technicians remain safe at work.

We take very seriously our primary duty to provide appropriate training that will protect our staff members from risks to their health and safety at work.

We follow industry recommendations and complete confined space training recertification every 2-3 years, and as such, we lay claim to being one of the very few – if not only – companies in our industry to offer Confined Space Entry qualifications as part our service.

 

Confined spaces often have poor ventilation which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop, especially if the space is small.

The risks of working in confined spaces include:

• loss of consciousness, impairment, injury or death due to the immediate effects of airborne contaminants
• fire or explosion from the ignition of flammable contaminants
• difficulty rescuing and treating an injured or unconscious person
• asphyxiation resulting from oxygen deficiency or immersion in a free-flowing material, such as grain, sand, fertiliser, water or other liquids

The following risks are associated with confined spaces:

As a result of airborne contaminants, people can lose consciousness, suffer impairment, or even die within seconds

Inflammable contaminants can cause a fire or explosion when ignited

Being unable to rescue and treat an injured or unconscious person

Asphyxiation may occur if oxygen is not present or if a free-flowing material is ingested, such as grain, sand, fertiliser, water, or any other liquid.

 

Equipping our Technicians with such qualifications to help keep them safe at work is aimed at protecting our workers from danger in any possible location – including confined spaces – where remedial waterproofing and concrete repair problems arise for our customers.

 

WORKING AT HEIGHTS

Our skilled Technicians possess a suite of licences and qualifications that enable them to safely access and treat sites with the range of our services at any height. Each Singapore Waterproofing holds Working at Heights qualifications. Many of our technicians also possess Elevated Work Platform (EWP) and High-Risk Work (HRW) Licences which qualify them to operate machinery that can access sites over 11 metres off the ground.
