Industrial rope access already in the 1970s
Rope access is a working method that enables safe work at high altitudes and in hard-to-reach locations. Industrial rope access was originally developed from climbing in caves in the late 1970s. Rope access is today used primarily for service, maintenance and inspection of industries and real estate. Rope access workers hang vertically in their harness. You climb up and down the ropes to perform the work. For longer work a sit-board can be used to increase comfort. The rope is used to prevent falls, however, a backup system is always used as additional security.
Industries and property owners have begun to see the benefits of industrial rope access more and more. It can often be a more cost-effective and quick and easy way to perform maintenance and service work. If you work with service or maintenance in hard-to-reach locations, rope access can be something for you.
As a SPRAT Level 1 Worker, you can perform rope access work under the direct supervision of a Level 3 Supervisor.
