Ferno Australia offer Davit confined space anchor and winch system for rescue and retrieval. While it may not be a daily occurrence in most industrial workplaces, confined space operations account for a number of potentially devastating injuries and fatalities to workers, first responders and those attempting to rescue.
A confined space allows an employee to enter and perform work, but has limited or restricted means of ingress or egress and is not designed for continuous human occupancy. The challenge with confined space work is that it is not actually designed for continuous human occupancy.
Davit confined space anchor and winch system, available from Ferno Australia, overcomes this and provides an appropriate solution for confined space anchor and winching. It is a structure usually made of steel, and is used for lowering and raising in situations such as rescue, retrieval and escape. It also stabilises access for improved safety.
Ferno Australia Davit confined space anchor and winch system offers quick and safe access to work areas where a tripod or overhead attachment is not easily accessible.
The Davit confined space anchor and winch system is developed in accordance with OH&S requirements. The Davit confined space anchor and winch system provides temporary or semi-permanent anchorage for safe worker entry and exit from confined spaces, and other situations where the worker's safety is compromised.
The Ferno Australia Davit confined space anchor and winch system is made from heavy-duty steel and is industrially galvanised, made from two parts (plus base) that nest inside each other with two carry handles. The arm can be swivelled 360 degrees.
The Davit confined space anchor and winch system can be used with a rope pulley system or can have a winch attached. The base, once bolted or anchored down, can be left in place or a number of bases can be installed around multiple work sites, so that a single Davit arm can service all areas. Its arm folds inside the main body, making transport and single person assembly easy.
The Davit confined space anchor and winch system is suitable for situations, where temporary or semi-permanent anchorage is required. The Davit confined space anchor and winch system is portable and flexible for positioning around manholes and access grates, where tripods does not fit.
The Davit confined space anchor and winch system offers a wide choice of entry methods such as:
