It is a fact that over the past few years, the use of rope access and positioning systems is increasingly used, in the field of construction, in wind farms and platforms. Rope operators (also called rope operators or Rocciatori) are specially trained professionals who move to often high heights in order to perform their actions without falling and without causing harm to themselves, to other people, And the context in which they operate.
These work systems are a direct evolution of alpinistic and speleological techniques, in which the operator is directly supported by the rope, whether it is suspended completely or is supported by the structure. In the past, mountaineers were being explored for this type of intervention. Specialization processes, that of technical safety at work and that of absolute regulation, have led to the creation of a specific professional figure.
Today you need to have a specific professional title.
