Sewer surveys to the highest standard


Adam Wharton and John Bishop are the latest DSS Environmental CCTV team leaders to pass their OS19X  Pipe Condition Classification Course.

The 5 day course is designed to give an understanding of the key features and technology involved in pipe sewer classification work to the WRc Manual of Sewer Condition Classification – 4th edition.

The course covers the need for and role of sewer condition classification, the key features of the various categories of pipe sewer and how to recognise and code the conditions and features.

With these qualifications DSSE CCTV crews are able to provide a great enhanced service to our clients when surveying and reporting on their sewer infrastructure.

The reports enable the right action to be taken to ensure optimum performance of the sewer asset.

Training is a vital part of the business not only for the technical aspect, as in this case, but also to ensure the highest safety standards.

The environment in which our crews work can be hazardous and best practice, through training, reassures our clients that the asset, their staff and the public are well cared for.

DSSE is part of the IWJS group of companies and offers the full range of services for the waste water sector including CCTV surveys, sewer clearing, re-lining, small civils works and waste tankering.
