Vertical Access, Safety & Rescue

When access to a workplace is a problem, rope access is the solution: fast, safe, versatile and efficient. Ascending and descending ropes comprise the primary means of access and represent the fundamental building blocks of our course.

Our course is based on modern rope-rescue principle and is in compliance with regulations of the federal agency Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Some of the subjects to be studied are: hazard assessment, mandate safety meetings, Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Personal Fall Arrest (PFA), Personal Fall Restraint (PFR), anchors, ascending and descending systems. Team self-rescue (OSHA Employee Emergency Action Plan 1926.502) will also be taught. With these techniques your personnel will not necessarily be obliged to depend on any external agency.
