Our services include:
Over the years, Zokal has become the leader in Inspection and Servicing of confined space and height safety equipment by developing our own systems to fill the needs of Australian companies. An example is the Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus (CABA suit) used in mining. We developed a cleaning, decontamination and service process for a CABA suit because of mining industry concern for Work, Health and Safety issues relating to people putting on and breathing from contaminated CABA Suits.
To facilitate this, we purpose built a CABA service facility of 400 square metres incorporating two service laboratories, self-draining cleaning and sanitising areas, high pressure cylinder hydrostatic test station and cylinder recharging area.
Our goal was not only to clean the CABA Suit of coal dust but to kill and remove fungi, yeasts and other bacteria from the respiratory area of the Suit. The suit was then placed in a vacuum sealed bag to maintain the hygiene integrity of the breathing apparatus.
After developing this process over a number of years our mining clients indicated that the process is definitely industry best practice with incredible results. Miners are now guaranteed clean, decontaminated CABA Suits when removed from their vacuum sealed bag.
Mining clients have been able to discontinue monthly pressure checks of CABA suits as the integrity of the CABA can be assessed at a glance by the degree of vacuum that the bag displays. This has resulted in significant savings to our clients, of both operator time and labour expense.
This process is so successful that it has been copied by competitors and product manufacturers in Australia and overseas. A testimate to Zokals’ ongoing innovation and improvement to life support equipment service processes.
PosiChek computerised testing and the resulting reports ensure compliance of the CABA Suits to the manufacturers specifications and when added to the Zokal generated equipment register meet all statutory requirements.
As part of your safety equipment management program we take responsibility to ensure that the equipment and paper work complies with the requirements of all statutory bodies.
We also provide Information and advice on compliance of your life support equipment, with Australian Standards, Manufacturers Specifications and other relevant Codes of Practice and Legislation requirements.
Zokal Safety Services can track all of your safety equipment ensuring traceability, historical documentation and compliance.
When Zokal handles all your equipment testing and repairs, your safety training and your safety equipment hire and supply, we guarantee 100% compliance!
