This is enabling us to facilitate projects ranging from 1 manway to our largest project to date of 185 manways, setting additionally a new world record for the highest number of confined space entry locations monitored through Remote Confined Space Monitoring at a single maintenance project.
What is RCSM™?
Remote Confined Space Monitoring or RCSM™ is the next step in the evolution of Confined Space Monitoring and Operations. Our system and processes leverage technology to fulfil the legislated responsibilities of a confined space attendant while enhancing the safety of entrants, reducing risk exposure hours, increasing operational efficiency, and reducing costs.
We are true providers
We have full access and control of the technology from the software and hardware to the methods and administration. This control allows us to be able to innovate and respond to client requests and concerns in a much shorter and direct manner. This level of technical support, expertise and guidance are unmatched by secondary providers who are sub-contracting their equipment.
Technical Components of RCSM Package
The RCSM technology enhances confined space worker safety by utilizing the following features:
• Access Control
• Internal and External Communication Components
• Internal and External Video Surveillance
• Emergency Alarms
• Gas Detection
These features are linked to the Central Dispatch Center (CDC). The CDC facilitates the monitoring of each confined space location on site. Technicians will be assigned to a station and monitor all activities at the locations they are responsible for.
The Technicians concentration and focus are guaranteed through two-hour periods of monitoring and field inspections at a time. This also provides the monitoring Technician with the chance to recognize condition changes of confined spaces that happened through the monitoring time.
Impact RCSM Equipment Classifications
Our remote confined space monitoring systems are available to our clients in two classifications:
General Purpose (GP):
System components conform to STD UL 508A-US, CSA 22.2-014-C, for non-hazardous locations such as power plants, full unit shutdowns, etc.
Hazardous Location Rated (HL):
Rated equipment for use in hazardous locations conforming to STD UL 508A-US, CSA 22.2-014-C, CSA 22.2-213C, and ATEX requirements for Zone 0 locations.
