Industrial Rope Access – Sydney

Atlas Access is famous for being on of the most open industrial rope access companies, and provides rope access workers as well as training in industrial rope access in Sydney.

When you need skilled rope access workers, Atlas Access should be the first place you think of. It is important for employers to be certain that anyone working at heights is properly certified and trained to do this. Asking your normal employees who have not completed the appropriate training is not only risking their lives, but also potentially opening you up to serious civil liability and even criminal prosecution.

Choosing skilled labour from Atlas Access is the best way to ensure you don’t encounter problems on short-term outsourced tasks, or for more permanent employment situations, our IRATA accredited rope access courses are the best way to get your team qualified.

Situations where industrial rope access may be required

Not every job that involves working at heights necessarily requires rope access skills. Crane operators, for example, could benefit from rope access training but don’t actually require it.

The majority of jobs where people need to work at heights either do require rope access qualifications or are at least made easier and safer when the people performing the work are qualified.

The main industries where rope access qualifications are used include construction, energy, petroleum, mining, search and rescue, and civil engineering.

There are many situations in construction where drone inspections just aren’t sufficient to provide the level of detail required. Relying entirely on remotely operated devices to gather such important data may result in small details not being noticed.

Rope access is also important in oil exploration, especially at sea on oil rig platforms. Oil exploration and oil drilling is definitely a situation where you’ll want to ensure nothing can go wrong. There are just so many dangers already present in this environment, so having people who are properly trained and qualified to carry out work at heights here is essential.

In the business of providing electricity, too, great care needs to be taken when working on towers and poles, because any mistakes can so easily turn fatal.

Obviously also in search and rescue efforts, rope access skills are a necessity. Being able to get into confined spaces with minimal effort and extract people who are trapped when you only have a limited time to get them out is a very demanding task. You’ll want to be sure that whoever is tasked with this mission knows what they are doing.

Our training courses cover a comprehensive range of skills which can qualify with IRATA accredited certification, which is the highest level of competency in industrial rope access. Students learn all the skills necessary for safely working at heights, and also learn about working safely in confined spaces, first aid skills, operation of open circuit breathing apparatus, and all the various techniques required in vertical rescue operations of all kinds.

All this training is available right here in Sydney, and we have trained personnel available all across Australia ready to go at a moment’s notice. When you have an emergency requiring skilled rope access personnel, Atlas Access is there to meet the need.
