Boiler Project, 2018

Proveo was requested to further develop Remote Confined Space Monitoring (RCSM) technology at an oil sands plant in Northern Alberta.

Challenge: Proveo was brought on site to clarify and solidify processes surrounding RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) to better develop the information available in case of an emergency.

Action: Proveo was able to develop a process to better determine if the owner of the triggered RFID is present in a confined space — which gives essential information for emergency services and proper rescue.


  • Overall cost savings utilizing RCSM vs traditional confined space management methods for this project was 28.44%
  • Reduced the risk exposure hours for personnel by 7,350 hours

Takeaway: As an ever innovating and technology-focused company, Proveo is always looking for ways to push past the stand and provide a higher standard for confined space safety.
