Additional information

Glossary of Terms ...

  • EX - Hazardous Areas - These are defined by three main criteria:
    - The type of hazard.
    - The likelihood of the hazard being present in flammable concentrations.
    - The (auto) ignition temperature of the hazardous material.
    The type of hazard (groups) - The hazard will be in the form of a gas, vapour, dust or fibre.

    Gases and Vapours - Gases and vapours are categorised in terms of their ignition energy or the maximum experimental safe gap (in respect of flameproof protection). This categorisation leads to the Gas Groups:

    ATEX - EC-Directive 94/9/EG (ATEX 95)
    The ATEX 95 is a so called "new approach" directive, which provides the technical requirements for equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

    The basic principles of ATEX 95:
  • - Fixing only essential health and safety requirements.
    - Technical details in harmonised standards CEN/CENELEC.
    - Application of standards is not mandatory.
  • - Conformity assessment procedures (modules).
    - CE-marketing mandatory.
    - Total harmonisation.

    Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) made this a mandatory requirement and increased the standards necessary to ensure the competency of personnel, thereby increasing workplace safety in potentially hazardous environments.

    IRATA is the sole global trade association in the work-at-height sector. Industrial rope access has been developed by IRATA in the last 20 years to a point where it is the chosen means of access for much of the work in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as a range of projects in construction.

These anchors are suitable for work positioning, fall arrest, restraint, rope access & rescue. Eyebolts & anchors offer the user protection from a possible fall from height whilst carrying out hazardous external works such as window cleaning, building maintenance, inspection, rope access & pest control. W@H can provide and install a comprehensive range of removable or fixed eyebolts and single point anchors for use in Concrete, Masonry, brick & steel. All anchors can be installed either internally or externally. Anchors used are manufactured from high tensile steel with either a galvanized or plastic coated finish or bright polished grade 316 stainless steel.

Installation: Installation should be carried out in accordance with BS 7883:2005 - Application & Use of Anchor Devices Conforming to BS EN 795 and Appendix A of BS EN 795:1997 - Protection Against Falls From A Height - Anchor Devices - Requirements & Testing. All installations carried out by W@H will include the full test procedure described below In the case of Anchor Devices installed into brickwork, concrete and masonry a 6kN axial load test of 15 seconds must be performed to ensure the integrity of the fixing.

Pre-use inspection: Prior each occasion of use, anchor devices are visually inspected & checked, in accordance with manufacturers instructions. It should be performed by competent personnel.

Inspection: At least once every 12 months each anchor device should be subjected to a periodic examination in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. If used for rope access purposes, anchor devices come under the Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), which requires an examination period to be every 6 months. Anchor devices that have been previously installed that are not used on a regular basis should not be used unless they have been inspected within the previous 12 months (or 6 months for rope access) Suitable labels will also be provided clearly showing the date of next inspection and the use that the anchor is intended. [Fall Arrest Only][Rope Access Only][For work Positioning & Restraint] For connection of personal fall protection equipment to anchor devices, connectors conforming to BS EN 362 should be used, Advice detailing this is given in BS 843

Main Disciplines ...


W@H are proficient In the installation, termination, connection, testing and certification of Fibre optic cables.

Fibre Optics are cables made up of super-thin filaments of glass or other transparent materials that can carry beams of light. Because a fiber-optic cable is light-based, data can be sent through it at the speed of light. Using a laser transmitter that encodes frequency signals into pulses of light, ones and zeros are sent through the cable. The receiving end of the transmission translates the light signals back into data which can be read by a computer.

Because fiber-optics are based entirely on beams of light, they are less susceptible to noise and interference than than other data-transfer mediums such as copper wires or telephone lines. However, the cables are fragile and are usually placed underground, which makes them difficult and expensive to install. Some fiber-optic cables are installed above ground, but if they break, they often need to be completely replaced, which is not cheap. While copper wires can be spliced and mended as many times as needed, it is much harder to fix glass fiber-optic cables.

Cement Manufacture ...

  • As part of a £6.4m kiln expansion project, to increase production by 25% from 800k TPA to 1m TPA, several extra cables of several hundred metres was required to be installed. These ranged from fibre-optic to control and power cables. The challenge faced by the project engineers was how to install the cables from the MCC panel in the substation to the field device(s) utilising the existing cable ladders and keeping costs to a minimum. The cable run consisted of vertical ladders within a cable gantry arrangement and a vertical run of 250ft over 6 floors of the pre-heater tower. The commissioning of the plant modifications had to be done during a 4-week shutdown period. Therefore all the new cables had to be installed beforehand whilst the plant was running. Access was required to the cable management systems to install the cables. Several options were considered based on cost, access and safety.

    - Poor access restricted getting the MEWP to the area of work.
    - The cable run was too complex to employ just one type of MEWP.
    - Large area restriction zones required which could impede maintenance & process operations.

    - A landing would have to be installed every 2.5m to allow for the dressing in of the cables.
    - Excessive man-hours required to errect/dismantle scaffolding in advance of plant shutdown.
    - The scaffold would most likely restrict maintenance and process operations.
    - As well as the scaffolding team, an electrical team would have to be employed to install cables.

    Rope Access
    - Personnel are time-served industrial electricians eliminating requirement for scaffolding teams.
    - Man-hours are reduced to an absolute minimum.
    - Ropes dismantled shift end & re-rigged start of next shift lifting any work area restriction zone.
    - All our access equipment requires minimal storage space - it all fits into a holdall.
    - Rope access is not likely to interfere with any production requirements.
    - Very minimal restriction zones required.

    W@H Solutions provided the solution, with a team of rope access technicians. All time served electricians, able to install & dress the cables quicker than errecting the scaffold alone!

ATOX Raw Mill Belt Weighers ...

  • Power and signal cables were required for two new belt weighers as part of a waste reduction process project.

    The vertical section of the cable run was approximately 15 to 20 metres off the ground, directly above a ground mounted vibrating screen.

    To scaffold up to the ladder rack would have meant errecting the scaffold around the screen. This would have restricted access to the screen should maintenance be required or blockages to be removed. There was no access possible for a MEWP.

    The ATOX Raw Mill is scheduled to be shut down for maintenance for 12 hour periods on a weekly basis. Working At Height (W@H) Solutions were able to coincide with the down day and install the cables using rope access techniques for working at height.

    The working at height operation was completed during the 12 hour window.
