Rope Access Benefits

  • Work Safety
  • Reduced Project Cost
  • Fast Deployment and Execution
  • Handling Multiple Technical Projects at a Time

The significant advantage of using rope access techniques lies in the safety and speed with which technicians can get to or from difficult locations to carry out their work, often with little impact on other ongoing operations, surrounding areas, and the environment.

Another considerable benefit is the combined reduction in the total man-hours and the perceived level of risk involved for a particular task, when compared with other means of access and their associated risks and costs.

Rope access involves climbing techniques and is a method of work positioning using ropes. A harness keeps the technician stable and secure. It originated from the various methods employed in mountain climbing, and it has evolved into an extremely safe and cost-effective industrial tool. It requires less manpower, and the needed lightweight equipment reduces the overall risk of exposure. All our rope access technicians receive extensive training and are certified every three years.

As with any other method for working at height, the application of rope access is regarded as a complete system in which planning, management, competence, and suitable equipment should be treated with equal importance, as each aspect is dependent on the other to ensure success and a safe system of work.

The primary objective when using rope access methods is to carry out the work efficiently, with minimal accidents, incidents, or dangerous occurrences. To ensure a safe work system is always maintained, while avoiding damage to property or harm to the environment, careful planning and documented risk assessments are undertaken for each planned operation.

Industrial Rope Access Technicians

We are IRATA-qualified Rope Access Technicians with extensive experience working both on and offsite. IRATA International’s rope access system is a safe and secure method of working at height when ropes and associated equipment are used to gain access to and from the work position.

IRATA International has a continuously evolving regime of work procedures that members must follow and are monitored for compliance to ensure that a safe work system is established and maintained. This sets IRATA International member companies apart from rope access companies that are not subject to rigorous monitoring, controls, and IRATA’s robust Training, Assessment, and Certification Scheme (TACS).
