Do you constantly struggle to find time to complete required maintenance work scopes? Are your current access solutions cutting into production? In this case study, we discuss how we were able to help our client complete inspection and repair on a steel stack, with a limited 2 week window.Learn More >
SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians) is based in America and aims to promote the safe use of Rope Access within our regulatory bodies here in North America. SPRAT training also consists of three levels of certification, which we host every month in BC only. Our methods of teaching aim to lay out the basics as clearly as possible; while inspiring you to problem solve and to be as efficient as possible. Team collaboration is essential for successful Rope Access technicians and we embody that nature within our Rope Access training.SPRAT Training >
Our Tower and Climbing Rescue program comes in two parts, Climber 1 and Climber 2. Both are in line and approved by STAC (The Structure, Tower and Antenna Council). This course is meant for technicians who have to climb and work on telecommunication towers. Custom and on-site training is available for this course.Tower Training >
Gain competency in the thorough examination of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This Petzl course is perfect for individuals who are responsible for equipment and work at height PPE inspections. But, we encourage all technicians to take this course to gain a better understanding of equipment inspection, which ultimately prevents equipment failure on site.Petzl PPE Inspection >
We understand that sometimes you need training for a specific work site or structure. Understanding the rescue procedures, protocols, and equipment for a particular job is important and you may not have someone qualified in-house to run this program. Our training team has helped many companies in this scenario with our custom rescue training. These programs can be completed at our facilities or on site.Contact us >
Over the years, we have encountered sites with assets that are hard to set up scaffold around, too remote, and/or in sensitive ecological environments. Using a mobile rope access welding company like Pacific Ropes can help you complete the most challenging projects on time and under budget. We helped a hydroelectric facility complete their repairs in the most remote places in BC! Contact us to ask us how!
Servicing difficult to access areas to maintain the integrity of structures, especially in industrial facilities that need to maintain production, can be costly. When you use a team like Pacific Ropes, you can reduce time and money, therefore ensuring assets get back to production as soon as possible.
As a CWB (CSA W47.1/W59) audited company, we provide welding teams to tackle the most challenging locations without the need for costly access equipment. Our welders are all IRATA certified and work under our IRATA Audited/COR Audited, risk managed field operations team.
We build multidisciplinary teams that deliver holistic solutions to scattered site problems from the design stage to the service deliverables. The integrated experiences and skills of our teams allows us to provide solutions during the engineering, design, and fabrication phase that result in time efficient and safe service deliverables on site by ticketed trades personnel. With specialist training in IRATA rope access, high angle rescue, and confined space rescue, you get expert teams that can handle the most complicated safety and rescue scenarios. When you choose to work with Pacific Ropes, you're guaranteed that our knowledgeable teams will bring forth efficient solutions, in a collaborative approach that will result in successful projects that reduce time and increase safety.
Comparatively, rope access can relieve budgets on average by 50% more than using scaffolding. Because we are a multidisciplinary team, and are able to use less conventional methods and/or equipment to access difficult locations, we are able to significantly reduce project costs.
Think of us like a multi-tool for work at height and confined spaces. Structural Steel Fabrication, Field Welding, Installations, and Industrial Maintenance can all be done by our teams!
There are 2 components to this, welding, and working on ropes. Our technicians are highly specialized and certified in their training in both areas. There are five components to rope access that each hold their own safety checks and balances in place. Together these five components create a synergy of work at height that is centered around one thing: safety. To read more about these five safety components, click below.Rope Access Safety
We are a CWB (CSA w47.1/W59) audited company, and our welders are all IRATA certified and work under our IRATA audited/COR audited risked managed field operations team.
If you have welding work scopes you need to accomplish in hard to reach areas, give us a call! We can provide a quote that will cover labour, access, and rescue costs! We can also work with your existing work force and train them to have rope access capabilities.
In Canada, the certifications that are recognized and accepted are IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) and SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians). Each certification has three levels that can be obtained. Minimum time experience and rope hours are required before a technician can upgrade to the next level. Each level requires certain amount of days of training and a third party examination. To learn about the different certifications and how training is conducted, please visit our training page!
