Generic risk assessment 2.1.1 examines the hazards, risks and controls to fire and rescue personnel, personnel of other agencies and members of the public when undertaking rescue activities in sewers. It consists of four intrinsic assessments that deal with specific activities involving rescues from confirmed spaces:

  • 2.1.1 Sewers

  • 2.1.2 Silos

  • 2.1.3 Trenches/Pits

  • 2.1.4 Collapsed Structures

This assessment examines only those hazards, risks and controls that are specific to incidents involving rescues from sewers and similar underground water systems. Although this generic risk assessment focuses on rescues from sewers its contents are applicable to rescues from any underground pipe work eg dry docks, fresh water trunk mains, underground reservoirs, sewage pumping stations (known in the industry as wet wells) and sewers under construction. It should be read in the context of Generic Risk Assessment 2.1 Rescues from confined spaces that provides information relating to Fire and Rescue Authorities work in confined spaces.
