Water Infrastructure Group hired a tripod and recovery system from Kennards Lift & Shift to assist them with one of their sewer rehabilitation projects.
Project engineer Pieter Schoofs says that safety is a primary consideration in projects involving confined space entry. The company has always hired tripods for similar projects.
Water Infrastructure Group needed an extra tripod unit to supplement their own equipment. The company has built a long-standing relationship with Kennards and has always been able to hire the necessary equipment when required.
Kennards Lift & Shift says that hiring equipment is a quick and cost-effective solution to confined space safety needs, and is a suitable option for companies not requiring equipment frequently or when extra items are needed.
Kennards offers davit arm units, gas detectors and air breathing apparatus packs for work in confined spaces. Additionally, rope positioning devices, safety harnesses and safety harness spreaders, inertia reel fall arrestors and safety lanyards can be hired for safe work at heights.
Kennards Lift & Shift operates equipment hire centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
