Ensuring Worker Safety at Transmission Gully
When we think of Transmission Gully, we all think of the major roadworks going on. However, spare a thought for the men and women working in the tunnel. This tunnel houses the water pipe, that runs through the Gully, transferring water to Porirua. While workers are removing dirt from above the tunnel, the pipe requires checking to ensure that the removal of dirt does not move the pipe.
FETS is pleased to be working on the development of Transmission Gully. We helped them create and practice a rescue plan as well as ensuring they had received the correct training before entering to the tunnel.
This training will support this project for the next 3 months and play an important role in ensuring the safety of those involved.
