AEMG provide a range of rope access services that enable us to manage and maintain structures on behalf of our Customers. All of our employees who deliver our rope access services are fully trained to IRATA standards and comply fully with all UK HSE legislation.

 

The use of rope access techniques to carry out routine maintenance of this nature is much more cost effective and flexible than scaffolding or the use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms. Additionally rope access works are far less disruptive to the public and traffic resulting in less congestion to the communities surrounding our work sites.

The clearance of self seeding trees, weeds and other unwanted vegetation that may have an adverse structural effect on the host structure or building.

For each project / work site a safe system of work is developed using written work method statements which explain how we are going to undertake the works and generic risk assessments which identify all of the risks associated with the works and provide mitigation for each risk.

 

Additionally daily site specific risk assessments are undertaken which identify any site specific risks and the mitigation for those risks
