Safe Manned Underwater Civil Inspections of a Canal

ASI recently completed underwater civil inspections of dock facilities in multiple locations in the Niagara Region. The inspections were carried out under the direction of a licensed engineer, utilizing CCTV video, LED lighting for real-time monitoring and the Ontario Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) as reference.

ASI commercial divers executed the inspections with precision and efficiency, allowing both the client and the engineer to observe the inspection process and communicate with the divers to ensure that all project objectives were met. The final deliverables to the client included both hard copies and digital reports for each structure inspected, bearing the seal and signature of a Professional Engineer registered in the Province of Ontario.

Each report presented the inspection results, observations, as well as photos and video recordings of the inspections, highlighting areas of interest. This successful project highlights the importance of utilizing technology in collaboration with manned inspections to ensure the accuracy and safety of underwater civil inspections. ASI team’s expertise and dedication to providing top-quality services have once again demonstrated their position as industry leaders in commercial diving and underwater inspections.
