Search First Intervention Team



Our personnel are always trained in the standards and procedures and keep up to date with a programme of continuous professional development. We work with each of our clients to put together a methods and procedures document which sets out how a particular operation can be run efficiently and securely without sacrificing safety. Our 100% track record in all our projects with vessel entry controllers (hole watchers) speaks for itself. You can trust our team to always provide the correct advice which is right for your business.

Vessel entry controllers are relevant for any number of industries that require staff or contractors to work within confined spaces. Some of these industries include:

  • Farming
  • Oil industry
  • Gas industry
  • Mining operations
  • Utility sector

When accessing vessel entry in a confined space, a competent top man must always be in place. This role is crucial to the safety of the project as the top man provides:

  • Line of sight support
  • Cover for the confined space entrants.
  • Monitor toxic fumes and exhaust gasses
  • Monitor levels of combustible gasses
  • Assess entrapment risks during the progress of the works
  • Regular communication with the confined space entrants
  • Raise the alarm and initiate evacuation procedures

First intervention team can supply fully trained experienced top men (hole watchers) to support confined space work. For high risk projects or for multiple entry, we can supply a confined space controller. A confined space controller has all the training of a top man including how to provide management and oversight of confined space works safely. Keeping your personnel and our team safe is non-negotiable. You can always trust FIT to make the right decisions and provide the right support so your operation runs smoothly.
