What is Rope Access?
Industrial climbing is another name for rope access. It is a task that requires expertise in techniques used in caving and climbing that allows the workers to access the locations which are not easy to access with the help of aerial work platform, scaffolding, or cradles. The ropes can be ascended, descended, or traversed to reach different places while working suspended through the harnesses. Very often work seats are used for difficult tasks to be performed. The ropes are strong enough to prevent any kind of fall but there is a fall arrest system for back-up in case of any mishap. So there are two ropes attached to the person, one working rope and the other safety rope.
Some associations such as IRATA keep a record of all the accidents, incidents, or near-miss occurrences. This record can help to evaluate the problems and come up with solutions to prevent any mishap due to mechanical failure in the future. Further, every country has some worker’s rights and some policies which make sure that the rope worker’s life is safe.
Since the beginning of rope access in the 1980s, very few accidents have been reported because of the mechanical failure.
