Rope access or industrial climbing is a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving, which applies practical ropework to allow workers to access difficult-to-reach locations without the use of scaffolding, cradles or an aerial work platform.
Our highly skilled specialist rope access teams are IRATA accredited and receive regular training and refresher training in advanced work techniques, working at height, current legislation and first aid. In addition to rope access, our specialist confined space personnel are trained and qualified, to fully adhere and conform to HSE Confined Spaced Regulations 1997 and The Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1998.
Our rope access equipment and breathing apparatus is maintained to the highest standards, and our documented maintenance and health and safety procedures are internally, and externally audited and conform to a number of national standards of accreditation, including Safe Contractor, Constructionline Gold, FORS Bronze, ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Assurance) and ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety).
With over 10 years’ experience in support of both government bodies and main contractors, our multi-skilled personnel have a wealth of experience and the equipment, to safely monitor and access the most demanding of environments.
