- Fewer men and less equipment reduce the overall risk exposure.
- Rope Access technicians receive training and are certified by a 3rd party (SPRAT or IRATA)
- Empowerment of all employees through Stop Work Authority.
- Continuous training and testing of Ropes Teams to ensure that we are able to go home safe to our families.
- Rope access, is without a doubt a more efficient means of access than scaffolding. It could take a team days to erect scaffolding to do necessary work on the other hand rope access techniques take a number of minutes to set up.
- It should also be remembered that time = money in regards to scaffolding. The cost of supplying the scaffolding and paying the technicians to do necessary work once it has been erected would far outweigh the cost of a rope access team.
- Rope access is flexible in the way that methods can be utilized in the hard to reach places. Unlike scaffolding, no large open area beneath the work site is required.
- Industrial rope access creates minimal architectural impact and very little in terms of ongoing maintenance cost, with ease of fast return visits, much different to the burden of scaffolding
