(rope) access

What is rope access?

In the Netherlands Rope Access is also known as industrial climbing. It is characterized by the use of ropes, climbing harnesses and other such equipment. With these tools we are able to reach otherwise inaccessible workplaces.

There are many good reasons to use Rope Access.

  • High and/or hard-to-reach places become easier and faster to reach
  • There is (hardly) any hindrance for your business proceedings within the (direct) vicinity
  • Our footprint is very limited. After we leave, you will hardly find a trace of us and you will not need to make any visible adjustments in order for us to be able to do our job.

Rope access is a good alternative to, or addition on, the use of existing systems such as scaffolding, hanging bridges or aerial platforms. Rope access techniques and equipment are specifically designed for work in the petrochemical offshore industry. It has its roots in the English offshore sector and is thus characterized by the extremely high safety standards which define this industry.

Safety is our first priority. Prior to commencing any project a V&G plan (health & safety plan) is made. Once on location, our technicians will always hold a Toolbox-conference with the client, using the V&G plan as a basis. Before we start our work a LMRA (last minute risk analysis) is always made. Scart only works with certified mechanics, equipment and tools.
