Safer Method Of Scaffolding Reduces Risk
22Sep 2012

STEER Strategy(Strive To Eliminate Every Risk) successfully reduces risk again

Pictured is the world-first scaffold built by Celtic Scaffolding for use during the construction of the Gorgon Project’s LNG Jetty and Marine structures by the Saipem Leighton Consortium (SLC) at the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson.  Preparing the scaffolding for work of this nature has typically involved personnel working at height. However, Celtic Scaffolding's Upside-Down-Scaffold is designed to reduce the time scaffolders spend working at height and reduce reliance on Personal Protective Equipment as a means of fall arrest. The process involves building scaffold at ground level, with the top structure in an upside down position, then turning the top structure and completed scaffolding upright before placing it on the caisson.

"Strive To Eliminate Every Risk"

Celtic Scaffolding's Upside-Down-Scaffold is a world-first, from concept to prototype (with structural testing), through to installation by Celtic Scaffolding's in-house engineering and design team, and was built almost entirely ring system scaffolding.  All works undertaken by Celtic Scaffolding on the SLC project are in line with Leighton Contractors’ Construction Safety Essentials, which identify the critical risks faced on construction projects.

Celtic Scaffolding's STEER Strategy has successfully seen the team design, and engineer out 1000's of man hours working at height.  Read more about other innovative solutions the team have created.

The Gorgon Project is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource project in Australian history. It is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3%), ExxonMobil (25%), Shell (25%), Osaka Gas (1.25%), Tokyo Gas (1%) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417%).
