The Brief:

Our client had an operation ongoing at a dockyard in Grimsby. A new, safer pontoon was being built and the contractors needed a safe space to load, manoeuvre and commence works.  They needed to safely mark out pathways alongside the original pontoon and the space as to where the new pontoon was being constructed. A space just before the waters edge also needed to be cordoned to prevent accidents. The cordoning needed to be easily seen, chapter 8 compliant and withstand certain impacts if accidentally knocked.

 

The Solution:

SafeSite deployed and installed 158 x Evo 80 barriers, working with the lead project manager and deciding where they should be placed for maximum effectiveness. The distance from SafeSite HQ and Grimsby is pretty expansive but our teams were able to dispatch, deliver and place the Evo Barriers in one day. Our client opted for water to fill the barriers rather than sand; SafeSite were able to locate beforehand, a local water supplier for this.

The Outcome:

SafeSite succeeded in creating a safe workspace while the new pontoon was being made. This will be a long hire for the next few months, going forward SafeSite will dismantle and reclaim the Evo Barriers at a time and date agreed with the client. Until then, their workspace remains secure while vehicles are left over night, being visible to both contractors and pedestrians visiting the docks.
