Rope Access Safety Recognition 2020

GeoHazard Safety Recognition

About the Association of Geohazard Professionals

The Association of Geohazard Professionals (AGHP) was created in 2013 to support the development of standards, specifications, and best practices concerning the design and implementation of geohazard-related technologies and products; and to support and provide education to the geohazard community and those it serves.

To promote safe work environments within the Geohazard industry, AGHP initiated its industry-wide Rope Access Safety Recognition Program in 2018.

This annual program recognizes companies that develop and implement safe rope access work procedures, provide education and training to their personnel, and commit to enhancing the safety culture within their organizations. A review of the applicants’ safety program and performance metrics is conducted including Total Incident Rates and Lost Time / Modified Duty Rates statistics. Additionally, the review process measures management involvement & commitment to the firm’s safety program, reviews their written rope access safety procedure, and determines adherence to industry best practices.
