Effective hazard assessments provide the foundation for your confined space process. All major components of the process depend upon an understanding of the hazards. Your training, equipment, policy, procedures, rescue service needs, and other aspects of your approach to confined space safety must be based upon a thorough knowledge of the challenges your entry crews will face. Assessing your confined spaces to identify hazards and potential hazards can be challenging. Med-Tex Services can assist you with evaluating your confined spaces and will conduct on-site evaluations to identify hazards as well as create entry and rescue pre-plans for each space. Our assessment teams are highly qualified experts in confined space entry/rescue and will provide you with a comprehensive entry pre-plan once the on-site evaluation is completed.


What is Rope Access?

Rope access refers to a set of techniques where ropes and specialized hardware are used as the primary means of providing access and support to workers. Generally, a two-rope system is employed: the working rope supports the worker, and the safety rope provides a backup fall protection rescue plan.

Who Uses Rope Access?

  • Civil, structural, and geotechnical engineers
  • Operations and maintenance workers
  • Construction workers and painters
  • High-rise window cleaners
  • Motion picture and theatrical set personnel
  • Tower and antenna installers

Why Use Rope Access?

Modern rope access rescue equipment, techniques, and training can be combined to produce an exceptionally safe, versatile, efficient, and cost-effective way to solve vertical access problems.

  • Rope access is safe. Independently certified rope-access technicians uphold an enviable safety record and few lost time incidents while working on rope.
  • Rope access is versatile. Technicians can apply the techniques in a wide variety of environments, from confined-space penstocks to massive concrete structures to high-angle rescues to complicated steel installations. Unlike traditional access methods, custom rope-access solutions can fit various applications quickly and inexpensively.
  • Rope access is efficient. Systems are installed and dismantled quickly and often require less personnel than traditional access methods. Rapid deployment limits disruption to facility operations by minimizing downtime.
  • Rope access is economical. Less personnel, faster completion, less equipment, and minimal downtime mean lower costs.
