Life On Ropes - INDUSTRIAL Rope Access SYSTEM

Life On Ropes - INDUSTRIAL Rope Access SYSTEM

Globally acknowledged IRATA rope access training from Singapore’s premier academy

We have seen it in the movies as well as on TV: terrified people trapped in high, inaccessible spaces being rescued by trained professionals using ropes and harness. Climbing and descending lithely like Spiderman, these pros help save lives and control damage to property. However, unlike the comics where Spiderman uses only a single strand of web, the professional rope access technician always has a second rope to ensure safety.
 
This is just one application of what we call ‘Industrial Rope Access’. Industrial rope access is an acknowledged profession. It involves ropework activity which makes it possible for workers to reach hard-to-access places without the use of scaffolding or an aerial work platform.
 
Rope access training is the grooming that turns an ordinary individual into a dashing safety professional. A professionally certified, skilled industrial rope access technician can formulate plans to safely perform a range of complex tasks such as rescue & hauling, repairs & maintenance, inspection, cleaning, surveying, among others. From power plants to high-rise construction sites, from off-shore installations to deep mines, industrial rope access technicians are in great demand today.
