Dampier Wharf

Scaffolding & Access,

Laing O'Rourke

Dampier Wharf, QLD

"All technicians receive extensive training and independent assessment and are required to undergo re-training every three years"

  • This project involved the coating repair of 144 wharf access pylons using rope access teams plus the equipment supply for installation of 200 stainless steel permanent anchors and the re-tensioning of the Wharfs fender bolts
  • The rope access worker works from two ropes - a working rope and a back-up, safety rope - and is permanently attached to both. 
    Each rope has a separate anchorage point. 
    In the unlikely event of the working rope becoming damaged or unusable, the safety rope prevents a fall. 
    To prevent accidental dropping all tools of a suitable weight are attached to the technician at all times; heavier items are independently suspended. A minimum of two technicians are required for any job so as to enable mutual surveillance - an extra safety feature. 
    Training includes rescue procedures. 
    All equipment is regularly inspected and well maintained.
  • 30 rope access technicians were hired for this project.
