Rope access, or otherwise known as industrial abseiling, is a practical rope work application of inspection, cleaning, welding, painting and maintenance work making use of traditional climbing and caving techniques

What Is Rope Access

Our technicians can perform vertical, horizontal, diagonal and more complex manoeuvres in three-dimensional space, that allows them to move up or down tall structures, and around obstacles to get into an appropriate position where a required work task may then be performed. Rope access relies on a double rope system for safety, into which the technician is connected with a harness. The first rope is mainly used for positioning, and the second rope for fall protection, in the sense that it arrests a fall if any unforeseen compromising event occurs on the positioning ropes, causing the technician to fall.

IWH Training
Provider Certificate



Rope access as we know it today, started in the early eighties with the development of safety techniques making it appropriate to work at height. In 1987 the world’s first rope access trade association, Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA), was formed. The UK’s Government health and safety authority, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), was involved from the outset and was a prime mover in ensuring that rope access would be a safe system of work at height.

Our industry in South Africa, is regulated by Institute for Work at Height (IWH) and by respective national associations, standards and legislation in other countries. All rope access and work at height training is performed in accordance to current legislation, SANS and IWH standards.
