These jobs can be construction with tunnel boring machines, repair and maintenance.
The high pressures of hyperbaric media cause unwanted effects on the functioning of the body, altering both respiration, digestion and circulation through the bloodstream, placing great stress on the human body and its most essential functions.
For this reason, to perform operations in hyperbaric environments, it is essential to have special protective equipment to help properly regulate bodily functions.
Works with tunnel boring machines
TBMs are large pieces of machinery used to drill tunnels in the ground. These tunnels can then be used to build subway lines and highways.
TBMs often have a rotating head that blades a path through the ground as it moves forward.
Working at great depths
Generally repair operations carried out by divers in hydraulic works located at great underwater depths.
Due to the effect of high pressures, they require a special mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and helium gases to stay submerged safely and to make the ascent to the surface in stages to avoid adverse effects on health.
