Whether workers are accessing a ship from the dock or loading chemical and petroleum barges, marine operations face unique safety challenges, due to the changing tides, constant motion and wide variation in vessel size and configuration.
A proactive approach to marine safety and the use of specialized safety equipment are essential to protect your employees, your facility and your products.
With so much at stake, you need a comprehensive marine safety solution tailored to your specific operations and work environment.
We have provided thousands of solutions over the past 80 years. Let us design a solution that exactly meets your needs.
Our Solutions-Based Approach To Marine Safety
Since each marine site has different needs and safety challenges, it's essential to work closely with a trusted vendor. At Carbis Solutions, we start by determining your specific requirements and safety goals. The factors we assess include:
How limited dock and/or vessel space impacts the safety equipment you use
Variances in low and high water at your location
The types of ships, barges or other vessels you need to accommodate
Variances in vessel draft from unloaded to loaded
Your internal safety standards, as well as applicable industry standards
Power limitations for electric, pneumatic and hydraulic equipment
Unique climate considerations
How to protect critical points from corrosion
After assessing your needs, we work with you to design a marine access solution for your facility that helps to improve safety while increasing productivity.
Marine Safety Equipment
Here are a few examples of equipment we may suggest as part of your larger marine safety solution:
Relying on rope ladders or jumping between the dock and the vessel are unsafe practices. OSHA recommends using a ramp or gangway whenever possible. Our barge gangways can be designed to accommodate variations in tide and barge equipment, providing safer footing and efficient access.
Our custom stage gangways help your crew safely access ships, barges or tankers, despite variations in tide level and vessel draft. These convenient gangways may be carried on board until your crew needs to disembark at your next port of call.
When workers are trying to gain ship access or are loading and unloading ships, standing water or corroded materials could result in slips and falls. We specialize in constructing ship towers to meet your specific marine fall prevention needs and comply with any local safety codes.
