Important Reasons to Hire Trained Rope Access Operatives

Ramora rope access operatives are IRATA rope access level 3 qualified for providing a range of cleaning and maintenance services from height. There are a number of advantages of rope access for working at height, in terms of safety, cost and efficiency. We have created a list of some of the most important reasons to hire IRATA trained operatives when it comes to any work carried out at height.

1

Comply with safety rules and regulations

Comply with safety rules and regulations

Understandably, as with any working conditions, there are many health and safety regulations that apply to rope access and working at height. By working with IRATA trained operatives, you can gain the peace of mind that all regulations are met.

2

IRATA are a world leading organisation

When it comes to jobs that require rope access, it’s always wise to contact IRATA trained companies as IRATA is the leading organisation for rope access in the world. As a result, operatives promote an extremely high standard in terms of safe practice and workmanship. IRATA continue to promote advancements in education and training around rope access and working at height.

3

Rope access is cheaper than other access methods

Rope access is cheaper than other access methods

Rope access (when carried out by trained operatives) is a fast and easy way to access difficult to reach points and carry out work in the shortest time possible with minimum risk. As a result, the total man hours required for rope access maintenance and cleaning jobs are considerably less than it would be using access machinery or other methods of access, for example, scaffolding.

4

The correct safety equipment for the job

Working at height via rope access requires very specific safety equipment to help reduce the risks. The specific equipment needed depends on the work that needs to be carried out, the type of building that the work will be carried out on and how many people will be working at height. IRATA trained operatives have the knowledge and experience to ensure that the right safety equipment is always used for the job.

5

Don’t underestimate the risks of working at height

Don’t underestimate the risks of working at height

As long as you are working above ground level (or even below ground level if your feet are off the ground), there is a risk involved. Statistics show that more accidents happen at a height of around 2 metres, compared to when people are 20 metres or more above ground. As lower heights make you feel safer, it is easier to be complacent and underestimate the risks of working at height. For this reason, if your premises are in need of a clean or some maintenance work, always hire IRATA rope access level 3 qualified operatives.
