Industrial Rope Access is a fast and safe alternative access method. It represents one of the core activities of our company.
We are members of IRATA – Industrial Rope Access Trade Association and of SPRAT – Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians.
IRATA is the only global trade association in the work-at-height sector; IRATA has member companies on every continent.
Industrial rope access has been continuosly developed by IRATA in the last 25 years, up to a point where it is the chosen means of access for much of the work in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as a range of projects in construction, civil engineering, the built and natural environment and much, much more. Its success is based on thorough training and strict work guidelines that deliver an unrivalled safe working record year after year.
AlpAccess is IRATA operator certified company with the registration number 6008/O. IRATA member companys are either trainer, operator or both type company. Each member company is audited periodically to ensure compliance to the IRATA guidelines.
The advantage of using rope access as an access method mainly lies in the safety and speed with which workers can get to or from difficult locations and then carry out their work safely, with minimal impact on other operations in the nearby area. Another major benefit beeing that the combination of the total man-hours and the level of risk for a particular task (man-at-risk hours) is often reduced when compared with other means of access and their associated risks and costs.
We provide certified technicians working on safe and certified procedures.
The main objective when using rope access methods is to plan, manage and carry out the work with minimal accidents, incidents or dangerous occurrences, i.e. to ensure a safe system of work is maintained at all times, and with no damage to property or harm to the environment. IRATA International has in place a continuously evolving regime of work procedures that members are required to follow and which are monitored for compliance to ensure that a safe system of work is established and maintained. This sets IRATA International member companies apart from other rope access companies that are not subject to such a rigorous scheme.
