Critical Points Servicess Access

Go to content



Before any job is started it is thoroughly assessed, planned and documented by the level III IRATA supervisor. Safety, effectiveness and specific procedures involved in accessing the intended point are incorporated into the Rigging Plan. A site specific
Rescue Plan is also documented and reviewed with all team members prior to the start of work.

Safety Meeting
A daily tailgate meeting is held at the beginning of each shift to review procedures and all safety issues. Supervisors complete Job Hazard Analysis forms, Risk Analysis / Risk Assessment forms prior to each shift.

All equipment meets or exceeds OSHA and ANSI requirements. Anchor, Slings, Carabiners, Ropes, Harnesses, Helmets.

Redundant Systems
Under IRATA all personnel working using full rope access methods must use two completely independent rope systems arranged so that, in the event of a failure of one, the worker cannot suffer a fall.
The result is that the incident rate for Rope Access workers is significantly below that of workers using scaffolding or traditional fall protection methods common in industry today.
