Our Rope Access team is growing!
During the last year we have increased from 8-13 so-called RAT teams – that is, teams consisting of a safety supervisor, a level 1 access technician and a level 2 access technician.
Many of our rope access technicians have gone from level 1 to level 2 and several have gone from level 2 to level 3 and are registered as safety supervisor aspirants.
Right now, there are several StS riggers being trained to RAT level 1.
