ROPE ACCESS SOLUTIONS FOR
INFRASTRUCTURE

 

Rope Access is a means to access a work site at height or in hard-to-reach areas.  Rope Access Technicians use top anchorage with a two rope system . to replace the more conventional means including scaffolding, swing stages, platforms, and ladders. Rope Access allows for a safer means of egress into areas not feasible or potentially hazardous to untrained public workers. 

 

Rope access also allows a "tread lightly" approach to sensitive material, mitigating or eliminating the damage that could occur to set up work positioning or the human impact of doing work. 

To ensure safety and quality in our execution of work, all of our rope access technicians are certified and trained in accordance with SPRAT and IRATA standards. All the fall-protection equipment is routinely inspected and maintained by competent people. Job specific safety planning and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) are implemented prior to each project.
