Industrial Plant Dismantling Safety

At Synergy Lifting, we always treat safety as the number one priority and this is especially important for our industrial plant dismantling projects. All of our plant dismantling projects are carried out under CDM (Construction Design and Management) regulations with a strict attention to detail. As with our other works, the initial step is for our team to devise a through method statement and risk assessment (RAMS) with a detailed outline of how the dismantling works will be carried out and a thorough investigation into potential risks. Our industrial plant dismantling team do not cut corners and we will often opt to use non-destructive dismantling techniques in order to maintain the structural integrity of plant during the loading and unloading process. All of our craneage on site is carried out under fully insured contract lift terms with a full set of RAMS and illustrated lift plans. Our site supervisors work alongside other contractors on site to ensure everyone is aware of the risks involved in our industrial plant dismantling activities.
