Over the Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations anywhere in North America.
Participants are invited to raise pledges in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of going over the edge of a local building.
We provide all of the equipment, the technical expertise, and the insurance for the event. We have conducted over 65 events in since we began in 2005.
We use IRATA and SPRAT staff because their safety standards create a model working environment.
The trade is referred to as rope access.CERTIFICATION
Equipment will be certified to by ANSI Z359…. There are a bunch of sub categories for different pieces of gear.
Part of regulations is that a job hazard analysis is completed; we hold safety meetings, and have written rescue plans.
It is not necessary to operate under these standards but they provide a sound level of safety.SAFETY
Safety is the most important aspect of the event. Any staff has the authority to stop the event if they feel something is unsafe.SAFETY (cont’d)
