Stop Dreaming. Start Climbing.

Rope access is the process of working at height using specialist ropes and equipment, allowing safe access to hard-to-reach areas. Using proven climbing and abseiling techniques; rope access enables a qualified operative to carry out their work efficiently and with minimal risk. The primary objective of rope access is to maintain a safe system of work in which the scope for accidents or dangerous situations is minimised.

Rope Access

By training with us and becoming IRATA competent; you can demonstrate that you can safely access locations and complete tasks otherwise not economically viable for most trades. This is a valuable and transposable skill.

Work at Height

Gaining an understanding and familiarity of working at height whether it be on scaffolding, elevated work platform or within a roofspace will enable you to work safely and efficiently where there is a risk of falling.

confined space training

We Bring Out the Best in You

Confined spaces come in many forms – silos, tanks, pipes, shafts – and are not always obvious. Trenches and tanks may trap poisonous gases despite being shallow and open to the air. Other spaces may appear to offer easy access but would make retrieval of a casualty very difficult.

Our courses give workers the knowledge they need to first recognise confined spaces, and then plan and carry out work safely within them. We have an expansive confined space training facility allowing for experience of multiple scenarios and situations.
