In the “rope access industry” we often get the same questions from newcomers, such as “How can I get into this exciting industry?” or “Where do I get training and what kind of training do I need?”.

 

A long time ago, I asked a good friend of mine to help someone out who was new to our industry and he pointed out the following:

 

Fall Protection

When considering fall protection it is common to think only of fall arrest.  When protection against falling is needed, most individuals may go to a safety store and buy standard equipment fabricated for fall arrest, which may or may not address their specific needs. To exacerbate the situation, certain companies have worked this angle for a long time, offering packages such as “compliance in a bucket”.

 

One of the many services we provide is the education of business owners, supervisors and technicians on the subject of how to work with legislation in regards to working at height.  It is undoubtedly a complicated matter that most Health and Safety Officials don’t comprehend well enough to give well-informed advice. The Health and Safety Official assigned to a project has much to think about and cannot be expected to know it all, especially if they have been incorrectly led to believe that wearing a harness properly encompasses all of the necessary safety precautions.
