Rope access is one of the most critical methods in any structure. What are the advantages of this method, and how do you select a qualified team to carry out this scope that we should be aware of?
What is rope access? Why is it regarded as a critical component and which technology is used for this service?
Rope technique has been used in a wide range of industrial applications. And this content will provide important information about this specific type, as well as the rope access service provider requirements to meet all standards.
The definition of rope access and how it addresses the issue of inaccessible areas
Rope access, also known as industrial climbing, is a work placement established from climbing and caving tactics. It makes use of practical ropework to allow workers to reach difficult-to-reach positions without scaffolding, cradles, or an aerial work platform. Belts are used by all technicians to descend, ascend, and traverse ropes for access and operations. A work seat may be used on occasion. The rope support has a role in avoiding the possibility of a fall entirely. However, a backup fall arrest system is used in the unlikely event that the primary support method fails. The priority in rope-access work is safety, which involves doing the operations with as few hazards, harmful occurrences, and accidents as possible. Rope-access operations are meticulously planned and controlled for quality to ensure the safety and security of all parties engaged. The working rope provides access and support for the worker. In contrast, the safety rope acts as an independent backup system to make difficult-to-reach regions accessible safely and efficiently.
The advantages of using rope access in all types of construction
For difficult-to-reach work areas, rope access has various advantages over traditional access systems. It is a secure, cost-effective, efficient, and adaptable mode of entry.Independently, it is a faster and more convenient technique for gaining heights than other traditional methods. Due to the high degree of required training, it is recognized as the safest technique for project completion. Each crew member from VIVABLAST – one of the top access services providers – must, in particular, fulfill stringent criteria and require strict evaluations to ensure that they are fully ready to undertake safely and efficiently at heights.Unlike classic access methods, tailored rope-access systems could be swiftly and affordably developed to accommodate a wide range of conditions and applications. Rope entry helps to reach all portions of a vertical structure with little time, space, and equipment, along with lower material and labour costs.
Standard of rope access services at VIVABLAST – among the most trusted providers in Vietnam with global techniques
The Industrial Rope Access Trade Association, or IRATA, is the world’s foremost trade association for the industrial rope access work-at-height. It was founded in the late 1980s to tackle the offshore oil and gas industry’s hard-to-reach or at-height maintenance difficulties by utilizing rope techniques pioneered in the climbing and caving industries. IRATA is a necessary technology that requires all member organizations that do rope entry to have extraordinary skill sets. It identifies any patterns in mishaps and supports the evolution of equipment and procedures, allowing for continuous improvement in work practices. VIVABLAST’s technicians are all certified IRATA level 1 and are trained regularly by an IRATA level 3 Supervisor. We follow ISO 9001 and Vietnamese work at heights standards (TCVN 8207-1:2009).
