We contacted Southey Contracting Limited’s Divisional Operations Manager, Rainier Kruisinga, to ask him about Southey Contracting Limited’s experience of becoming an IRATA member company.
What were the main reasons for Southey Contracting Limited to become an IRATA member?
Considering our growth within the Rope Access industry it was only a matter of time that we got affiliated with IRATA, this in conjunction that it has become a requirement for Rope Access Contractors to be IRATA accredited.
What are the main rope access industries in Ghana?
Southey’s main focus for Southey in Ghana has been predominantly offshore where we have long term contracts with the likes of Modec, we do however fulfil requests for onshore Rope Access in the industrial and Mining sectors. However our main focus for Rope Access works remains in the Offshore industry.
