Rope/High Angle Rescue

Ponder Environmental Services also provides Rope/High Angle Rescue services to our clients. High Angle Rescue work conditions exist when performed on terrain or surfaces with a slope equal to or greater than 60 degrees. Adequate rope systems must be constructed to prevent working employees from falling, while providing trained rescuers with the leverage necessary to gain access to and egress from the rescue location. Examples of high angle locations include: pipe racks, ledges, cat-walks, tops of vessels, silos, storage tanks, and water tower.

High angles are also found below grade level in ship holds, barges, tunnels, sewer and piping systems, and vaults. Good, competent technical rescue skills involving ropes, anchoring and belaying systems, lowering and hauling systems and stretcher work are mandatory for the safe performance of the rescue team.
