Safety Procedures

Health and safety excellence for high hazard work

The Height Experts


How we work


Whilst any work at height is inherently dangerous, health and safety excellence lies at the heart of everything we do. It is this passion for safety which sees Access North Structures maintain an exemplary on-site record that protects our rope access technicians, clients and wider stakeholders from coming to any harm. This all translates into complete reassurance that, as a client, you’re in safe hands.

Such high standards are possible, thanks to a 5-pronged safety strategy:

  1. For your peace of mind, we only employ the most experienced and diligent rope access technicians.
  2. We invest in ongoing training for our staff, to ensure qualifications and certifications remain fresh and up to date.
  3. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of industry change, therefore we constantly review our safety protocol to ensure our knowledge, procedures and practices remain robust.
  4. We are independently accredited by the leading construction authorities on safety matters.
  5. For absolute peace of mind, we operate on a fully insured and transparent basis.

IRATA & IPAF


Working to industry standards


IRATA Qualified Technicians

All Access North Structures technicians are IRATA qualified. This means they have been rigorously trained and certified in line with the standards set out by the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association – the world’s leading authority on this work at height practice.

IPAF Qualified Technicians

Because we may sometimes need to use elevated work platforms, our technicians are also trained by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). Their IPAF qualifications ensures the safe and effective use of this plant and machinery on site.

 

Accreditations


Any responsible contractor involved in the construction industry should have a wealth of safety accreditations under their belt. We are proud members of Altius VA, the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment (CHAS) scheme, Constructionline and SafeContractor, and work proactively with these organisations to maintain our knowledge and safe working practices.
