Based on the concept of “doubling up,” Rope Access is a system comprising of ropes and hardware that are attached to a worker in a certified Rope Access harness. Using trained techniques, the worker can utilize this system to go up, down, and transfer, all while avoiding any worksite hazards.
A rope access technician can access the worksite, complete the task at hand, and perform rescues in an emergency. Three line budget items are now condensed into one. This cuts costs and increases your profit!
The main associations that we work with here in North America are IRATA and SPRAT. Companies who choose to use rope access will abide to either IRATA or SPRAT regulations. The requirements to follow either IRATA or SPRAT depend on provincial regulation. To find out more about each association, click below.
