Rope Access

Rope access as a means of safe work positioning developed first in the arena of climbing and caving. Over the years these skills have evolved to meet the needs of industry, keen to utilise the efficiency and safety record of such systems.

Rope access is now recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as a viable and fully accredited alternative to more traditional forms of access such as scaffold and mechanical lifting platforms. As such it is employed in a vast range of scenarios where access needs require a safe and cost effective approach. in addition it has the advantage of enabling work positioning where other access systems simply cannot.

All our operatives are trained and assessed to comply with British Standard ISO 22846-2 Code of Practice for Rope Access, provided by the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) and other accredited providers. In addition, our British Standard compliant in-house training program of safe working practice, equips our operatives for work in a full range of challenging access situations.
