Regency Road to Pym Street (R2P) Project

The problem 

This project presented many challenges, including working next to an active roadway, working at night, working both on and under bridges and walkways as well as working near mobile plant operated by others.

The solution 

Before any work commenced detailed risk assessments were carried out to ensure all safety and environmental considerations were taken into account.

The result 

All controls documented in the risk assessments were put in place and adhered to by all.  

We are pleased to report that no safety or environmental incidents occurred for any of the work carried out by Swart.
