  5. Rope Access


Rope access allows access to difficult to reach areas. Originally based on climbing and caving techniques, it uses specialized harnesses and ropes to ensure that tasks can be carried out with the highest degree of safety and with minimum disruption to operations. It makes inaccessible areas accessible safely and quickly.

The advantages of using rope access methods mainly lies in the safety and speed with which workers can get to or from difficult locations and then carry out their work, with minimal impact on other operations and the nearby area. Another major benefit is that the combination of the total man hours and the level of risk for a task (man at risk hours) is often reduced when compared with other means of access such as scaffold.

Rope access work is not restricted by height, location, or ground conditions, and can be implemented far beyond the reaches of fall arrest systems, MEWPS, and other means of access.


Our goal is to provide specialized teams, reduce on-site required personnel, and limit potential exposure to all. We offer the following:

    • Inspection Services (Conventional and Advanced NDT)
    • Electrical Services: installations, cable tray and conduit installation, cable pulls, fiber optics, heat trace, instrumentation, terminations, lighting, and other services
    • Mechanical Services: bolting, blinding, structural repairs, pipe installation and removal, spring hanger repairs, and pipe shoe adjustment
    • Fabric Maintenance: insulation work, sheet metal and jacketing, banding, siding installation, storm damage repair, surface preparation, painting and industrial cleaning, and welding


IRISNDT can mobilize and stage multi-disciplined crews, capable of providing mechanical and inspection services, on ropes or on the ground. The result is much fewer personnel required to perform a multitude of tasks all while adhering to current heightened safety protocols.

Laser Cleaning on Ropes


Safety is #1 with IRISNDT. In North America, IRISNDT is a full member of SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians), and IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association), which ensures that we maintain the highest level of safety and training. Our rope access technicians use only the best equipment which is constantly inspected, tested and maintained to meet industry standards. Our two-rope system enables our technicians to operate safely in a wide array of industrial and commercial industries. The Industrial Rope Access industry has been able to maintain an excellent “Reportable Incident” rate of less than 0.5 in 100,000 hours worked on the ropes. This is unrivaled in the working at heights industry. The numbers are backed by IRATA through rigorous incident reporting by its member companies.

All rope access teams are capable of self-rescue. Our technicians only place themselves in positions where they can be self-rescued or by their team if necessary. To ensure we eliminate such events, our rope crews conduct method statement, risk assessment, rescue plans and JSA’s to ensure that all hazards are identified and mitigated.
