Rope Access Contracting
The directors of Eurosafe Solutions have together over 40 years of experience in the use of rope access techniques to carry out works where traditional access methods don’t work or are two costly.
All of our work is carried out to the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) guidelines, using IRATA qualified operatives operating to the British Standard Code of Practice BS7985:2002. Our management team includes level 3 IRATA qualified supervisors with a vast range of experience in the rope access industry. As well as using these techniques for our own work we are able to offer this service to our clients to carry out or assist with their operations.
Rope access is a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving where the operative uses ropes to ascend and descend. The industry has an exemplary safety record which derives from adherence to the guidelines laid out by IRATA. These rigorous training requirements produce professional, highly aware technicians that have ensured that there have been very few accidents since IRATA was founded in the late 1980’s. All of our technicians carry up to date training records and certificates.
This method of access can generate considerable savings as it does away with expensive scaffolding or machinery and allows a rapid installation and dismantling of access equipment, which in turn causes minimal disruption to building occupants or other trades. Rope access gives a practical, safe solution with the ability to solve awkward and troublesome problems that might otherwise absorb a disproportionate amount of time and money.
