Rope Access Work
Occasionally, it is necessary to inspect rock slopes using rope access techniques.
Using IRATA qualified contractors, the rock slope is closely inspected and logged in-situ, to assist in slope stability assessments.
Rope Access Work for Cliff Stability Survey, Dorset
Ruddlesden geotechnical were commissioned to undertake a cliff stability survey for a property situated on the Isle of Portland.
In order for kinematic analyses to be undertaken, to inform the need for remedial (stabilisation) measures, rock mass data was required. Due to the inaccessibility of the limestone escarpment, rope access was required to obtain the necessary data.
Ruddlesden geotechnical obtained the data under the supervision of IRATA-qualified personnel, who managed all of the health and safety aspects of the project.
