Mike will discuss the rise and acceptability of rope access and other alternative work at height methods in the construction, energy, and engineering field.
Every engineering project factors worker and site safety into consideration, and worker falls consistently rank as a primary cause of preventable work site injuries and deaths. Rope access has an exemplary track record of worker safety, better than traditional access methods. This work method frequently allows workers to perform their duties at locations that negate the need for expensive and cumbersome scaffolding, cranes, and traffic control. However, the regulatory framework for this work method is often confusing, and the work method itself is often misunderstood.
This presentation will provide an introduction to rope access, how it can be used in different work environments, and what you should be mindful of as an owner, contractor, or design professional when deciding to implement it into you project.
