What is Rope Access?

It is in many cases one of the safest ways to complete a task that requires an operative to be working at height. Using a static working rope and a backup rope, operatives can position themselves virtually anywhere through the use of harness equipment and a suitably positioned anchor/anchors. It is a cost effective way of accessing difficult to reach areas, and in most cases is a very fast way of carrying out maintenance as well as.
