Abseiling, climbing on cliff faces, down caves or up in trees. Technique used to get persons in suspension on ropes into locations which are difficult to access by other means e. Its success is based on thorough training and strict work guidelines that deliver an unrivalled safe working record year after year.
Industrial Rope Access is a proven method of achieving a safe work position at height or in areas of difficult access.
While inspection is the most common application, welding, cutting and heavy material handling can be accomplished by rope access professionals using specialised procedures.
It offers delegates theoretical and practical training to enable them to identify potential risks and hazards associated with rope access and set up for basic rope access work.
Initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving, it answered the need for a safe, simple, adaptable and cost effective means of access.
This course is ideally suited for those wishing to carry out work or inspections on sloping roofs that have no other means of fall protection, steep embankments or similar places where safe access is required.

Training Courses Rope Access Technologies
Industrial rope access has been developed by IRATA International for over 75 years to a point where it is the chosen means of access for much of the work in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as a range of projects in construction, civil engineering, the built and natural environment and much more.
On completion of the course delegates should be able to set up simple temporary rope access systems to carry out work at height safely.
Verify a Technician's certification using our simple Technician Validation Tool.
The environmental, efficiency and economic benefits have resulted in growing international support for industrial rope access ahead of alternative means of access.
