REM Pumping takes health and safety training very seriously. The nature of our work means that we often have to work in potentially dangerous situations and locations.

Confined Spaces

A ‘confined space’ means any place, including any chamber, tank, vat, silo, pit, trench, pipe, sewer, flue, well, or other similar space in which, by virtue of its enclosed nature, there arises a reasonably foreseeable specified risk…

This is the definition given within the Confined Spaces Regulations 2001 and the aspect of ‘foreseeable risk’ can often be difficult for the layman to interpret correctly. REM Pumping are the experts in carrying out inspections and works within Confined Spaces.

Experienced Confined Spaces & qualified BA (breathing apparatus) teams available, providing you with total security and peace of mind.

Hazardous Areas

REM Pumping is an authorised repairer of ATEX-approved motors, pumps and fans for hazardous (explosive) areas.

Additionally, we have Comp-Ex (Oil & Gas) trained engineers available and can advise on hazardous area installations where necessary.

Working at Heights

Our engineers hold valid IPAF licences to work with mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs) and ‘cherry pickers’…

Working at height therefore poses no problems, and we are specialists in providing lighting column & high bay lighting services.


Good risk assessments, method statements and high standards – all very important
