Job 1037 - Re-Certify or Fail Safety Gear
A smaller 2-day project involving the certification of compliant safety gear, or failing as the case may be, for a client established in Bridge Climbs. The client takes safety serioulsy and in this 6-monthly audit many tested harnesses though safe to the user, were found not to comply with standard and needed replacement. Industrial Abseiling is a company certified to provide and install safety systems. Systems installed are certifed and tagged and then maintained yearly or as the client's need change.
Job 1076 - Remove and replace VB Beer Banner
Industrial Abseiling was asked by Foster's and a Sign company to remove a large building banner and repalce it with a new one advertising the hotel as the best in Australia.
No tie points were available so ropes were tied off around 4WD's and anchored right over the top of the building.
Two tradies worked on rope and Craig Ashton assisted in traffic and ground management. We know Craig did it tough as three empty cups of coffee and his food scraps were left in our transport vehicle!
On Ya Craig!!
