HDS – ConsultMesh

What did we do?

HDS contacted MESH early in 2018 to undertake a noise survey connected to unloading containerised cargo at Tilbury docks. The removal of the containerised cargo is a noisy process as it is secured by chains which are delashed by a team of typically 10 operatives.  Once chains have been released a number of Port of Tilbury motorised ‘tugs’ then remove the containers from the decks.

The main source of the noise is the dropping of the chains as they are released, plus the dragging of the chains along the deck so that the tugs can gain access. In addition to the chains being dropped and dragged there are a number of ventilation fans on each deck generating noise.

MESH undertook suitable noise readings and from this advised management on what controls were required to protect the operatives hearing and to comply with the Noise at Work Regulations.

What did we do?

Since 2007, MESH has been working with the UK based operations of the Discovery Channel, acting in the role of Competent Persons. From an initial brief to develop emergency response systems, the MESH involvement has evolved to ensure Discovery are consistently achieving compliance and best practice throughout Europe, The Middle East, and Africa.

As part of this work, MESH has undertaken a detailed Health and Safety audit of the Discovery operations based out of the London office. The findings were presented in a detailed report to senior management along with a number of recommendations.

As part of the report the recommendations were developed into a two-year action plan aimed at bringing Discovery operations to a consistent level of Health and Safety best practice.

What the client said
