Asset Inspection & Rope Installation

Asset inspection and rope installation are a vital part of high-risk work areas and confined spaces such as construction and mining sites. That is why at Saferight, we give importance to maintaining frequent asset inspections in all our work, especially in our high-risk rope installations.

Having worn out and obsolete assets for sectors working at heights and confined spaces will can increase the risk and bring a terrible mess. Being an accredited safety specialist, Saferight maintains a frequent asset inspection to ensure that every piece of equipment is working to its full potential over its life cycle. This is an effective and efficient part of management to detect any potential risk before it becomes a problem. With over 30 years of experience in the market and as a fully licensed manufacturer, Saferight’s highly experienced personnel can assess the physical condition of each piece of equipment and recommend needed repairs when necessary.

Saferight administers rope installation to high areas and confined spaces. Rope installation provides extensive advantages and benefits when it comes to accessibility which is why this is A MUST in every confined space. One such project we completed was the installation of rope access equipment and asset inspection in this high-risk working environment in Western Australia.

This project was to allow safe access and retrieval of scaffolding personnel over highly hazardous eroding ground (underground conveyors). This structure required 380m of aide climbing to safely access and install a Fall Prevention System, in order to implement a system capable of arresting the fall of a scaffolder within a set distance. This system also allowed for easy rescue retrieval as lowering the casualty down to the unsafe eroding ground was not an option.

Regardless of our finishing position of the installation, we were required to climb the whole way back at the end of the day. Due to the large distances required for climbing, Saferight was required to implement considerable planning and take all equipment, temporary anchor points, lunch and water with the technicians required for the day or at purposely positioned resupply points along the climb.

This task was able to be completed with a series of Restrictive Tripper isolations, and only one isolation of the belt that was aligned with other service requirements which resulted in no delay in production.

This was one of the first Rope Access projects ever undertaken on site and was highly scrutinised by Safety and Management personnel. This project was completed within the timeline and budget even with multiple delays to satisfy site personnel’s limited knowledge of Rope Access and resulting safety concerns.

For mining and resource sectors in Western Australia requiring safety management solutions, Saferight will provide the best solution and training with highly experienced assessors and personnel.
