At Tasman Rope Access, there is never any compromise to the health and safety of our staff. Since the establishment of the company, Tasman has successfully maintained a zero lost time and medically treated injury rate. This is due in part to our strong HSEQ integrated management system and dedicated staff who continue to ensure that safety is paramount in everything that we do.
With over 350 IRATA-qualified technicians, we supply skilled tradesmen and women on a 24-7 basis. Our technicians can access, inspect, repair and replace equipment without the requirement for scaffold. The removal of scaffold results in substantial cost savings from a reduction in equipment hire, work scheduling lead-times and labour capital expenditures.
