Corporate Cleaning Services is proud to introduce a unique alternative to suspended scaffolds and traditional rope descent– “Industrial Rope Access.” Commonly used in applications such as bridge/wind energy maintenance or cleaning and maintenance of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Industrial Rope Access offers numerous safety and efficiency advantages previously unavailable in our industry. As we continue to strive for the highest safety and service standards, we are excited to offer this new alternative. Industrial Rope Access, or “IRA,” is a means of descent and ascent exempt from the OSHA 1910.27 height restriction.
This system differs from traditional rope descent in a number of ways. While traditional “rope descent” and “IRA” share some similarities, there are some significant differences that prompted the SPRAT organization (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians) to participate in OSHA’s final ruling resulting in an exemption from the height restriction.
