Brock has always offered Rope Access as an alternate solution to traditional work access options. It is a safer and more efficient way to complete projects at heights and in confined spaces. In recent months, Rope Access is also being used as a means to complete work on sites where headcounts are lower and social distancing guidelines are being enforced due to COVID-19. Brock's Rope Access program and technicians also maintain an exceptional safety record and we are committed to maintaining our incident and injury free status.
Rope access describes a variety of advanced access techniques where ropes and specialized equipment are used as the primary method for providing access and support to workers in their jobs at high or hard-to-reach places.
Plants need access to these diﬃcult locations for inspection, maintenance, and mechanical tasks. Traditional access methods such as scaﬀolding, crane baskets and lifts may not be feasible due to difficult to reach work areas, time sensitive tasks, or economics.
Brock can quickly mobilize an integrated team of trades and rope access technicians to complete services such as insulation, painting and coatings, and fireproofing, as well as NDE, electrical and welding.
Rope Access is an alternate access solution that allows crews to reach heights and confined areas using a secure, two-rope system. It requires less interference with other facility operations, meaning less disruptions, minimized downtime, increased production and a safer work environment for all personnel.
Fewer personnel and equipment required, translates to minimal downtime and increased production.
Quicker installation for access resulting in less interference with other facility operations.
High focus on processes and procedures to maintain our incident and injury free status.
Compared to other access methods, work hours required are significantly reduced per task.
