Sellafield Nuclear Reprocessing Site

WORKS CONTINUE DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC

We are proud to have been able to continue our work at Sellafield during the outbreak of Covid-19. The Sellafield nuclear waste reprocessing site has many ongoing construction projects that must continue due to their essential nature. Consequently G&M Safety Netting have been attending Sellafield during lock down to support ongoing construction. As a result our workers are considered to be “key Workers” and allowed to travel during the pandemic.

Sellafield has been an ongoing site for us for many years and for many different contractors. As a nuclear site Sellafield has a vetting procedure that all contractors must go through prior to being allowed on the site. As a result security is tight and only vetted pass holders may enter the site. Health and Safety is of paramount concern at the site. As a result social distancing measure were in place on the site.

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING AT SELLAFIELD?

During the Covid-19 outbreak we have had a small team of FASET trained riggers attending site to install safety net systems. These safety nets have been use to protect workers installing roof cladding. Consequently the operatives were able to work unhindered by the traditional personal fall protective equipment.

The nets used were type S knotted Safety Nets. Secured to the steel using nylon rope with a 3 tonne breaking strain. Consequently this ensured the safety of the cladding installers whilst they worked above the Safety Net System. As a result they are able to work with confidence and efficiency.
