ASC PTY LTD

Remote Camera and Audio Confined Space Monitoring (Portable Safety Cam)

The problem or challenge

ASC has over 300 confined spaces on submarines and battleships that require confined space permit to be issued for work to be carried out. A person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure:

  • Continuous communication with the worker from outside the space.
  • Conditions are monitored within the space by a standby person who is in the vicinity of the space and, if practicable, observing the work being carried out.

Due to the size, design and type of work carried out within the confined spaces, constant communication and monitoring of workers presents a number of challenges. These include no line of sight; workers wearing welding helmets and heavy welding gloves mean it can be difficult to hear and handle radios, while constant travel within the confined space means re-establishing a communication method.

 

The approach and outcome

ASC introduced a portable safety camera to improve the visual monitoring and verbal

 

Key achievemetns

  • High acceptability across the workplace
  • Minimal costs to the business for hardware introduction and associated training.
  • Improved communication via the Bluetooth enabled headset due to a continuous “open channel”, immediate verbal feedback and low interference of external noise.
  • Improved monitoring due to the direct line of sight by the high definition digital camera and ability to move the camera when the work moves.
  • Improved emergency response dye to the immediate visual and verbal feedback.
  • Significant cost savings in sentry labour due to the ability to have one sentry monitor up to four different spaces.
