Silo Health and Safety Assessments

Expert advice to ensure your people are protected

Silos are significant health and safety risks and it is critical that you understand the dangers and take appropriate action to protect your people.

Our expert team carry out comprehensive health and safety assessments of your silo and all associated equipment.

The NEBOSH qualified advisors perform in-depth reviews of the site and then provide a detailed set of recommendations on what is required to ensure anyone working around your silo is safe and protected.

We recommend assessments are done before a silo is used. An assessment should also be carried after any incident occurs to ensure the silo is safe for anyone else operating it in the future.

Our comprehensive inspections cover a range of key issues, including:

  • The condition of the silo and all related equipment
  • The environment surrounding the silo(s) including ground condition
  • Safety alarm performance and suitability checks
  • Labelling of items such as input pipes
  • Any risks associated with the items being stored in the silo(s)
  • Obstacles and height restrictions for operators loading and unloading the silo
  • Pedestrian risk
  • Training and operating processes

Our advisors are independent and we work with a range of suppliers so we can also help source and install any equipment needed following the assessment.
