A series of modular pontoon platforms formed a safe working environment on the Grand Union Canal in Hertfordshire recently. The Canal and River Trust ordered a full canal closure for the duration of the bridge works which commenced in January, so time was restricted for our client. Our safe working solution was to provide 4 installations; an under bridge working platform and towpath diversion plus two protection booms either side of the works and pedestrian walkway, this totalled approximately 300m. sq. All of our installations carry some level of edge protection as standard which is included in the hire cost of the pontoon.
The safety of our clients is paramount and our 100% incident free record is proof that our working methods offer the safest solutions for working on water. Pontoonworks are the only company in the UK with CSCS accredited modular pontoon installers. Every member of the team carries a blue Skilled Worker card which forms the foundation of their training, this brings a level of professionalism to our clients projects that they won’t find anywhere else in the UK. Achilles UVDB is a prerequisite for working for the Canal and River Trust and together with Constructionline Gold, Builder’s Profile and Acclaim we are continuing to maintain our position at the top of our sector.
