Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has given lifting and rigging safety sessions at HS2’s Atlas Road site in London, UK.

RSS arranged for Crosby Group’s ‘rig safe rig smart European trailer’ to be parked at the site for two days, where piling works were recently completed to build the tunnel launch box and ramp that will allow for construction of a logistics tunnel using a tunnel boring machine (TBM). 

RSS director Sean Maslen said: “The truck is a great concept and allows us to take toolbox training direct to the point of use. HS2 is keen to promote knowledge sharing and this site experience aligned perfectly with that ethos; we staged short sessions and engaged with end users who walked up to the vehicle, which unfolds like a temporary exhibition stand.”
