working at heights

Various methods are used to reach a work location at height. The most common methods are scaffolding, aerial work platforms and rope access.

Advantages & disadvantages

All three methods have their advantages and disadvantages. Scaffolding is ideal for reaching a large work area when working for a long time. Mobile elevating platforms can be used to move around quickly and easily.

But there are work locations where a scaffolding and a mobile elevating platforms are not possible or not safest. Think of confined spaces, locations above water or sloping roofs. In these cases rope access offers the solution. With rope techniques and safety materials we make difficult to reach locations accessible. These rope techniques enable us to be on location quickly and safely, to climb everywhere and to work efficiently. Rope access is a recognized safe method of work at height according to the National health and safety legislation, if carried out according to IRATA guidelines.
