Tunnelling Consulting Services & Personnel
Our Consultancy service aims to put in place a complete operational system of Hyperbaric, Medical, Safety and Occupational Health Regimes which are compliant with local legislation, but also utilise our expertise and available technology to achieve the “Best Working Practice” for a given project or location. Working in this way, the client can have systems in readiness or contingency available, whilst the project is under design or in development. The consultancy support normally then continues over the duration of the project to assist with amendments / improvements to procedure and to assist with the various unforeseen challenges that inevitably develop.
