  • Rope Access

    Absafe is an IRATA member company.

    Rope access is a form of work positioning initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving. Andy Caddy, Absafe’s Director, has been working in the field since the inception of Rope Access in Australia in the mid-1990s. He has watched Rope Access evolve from being a little known extreme method of access to one in which $3 million façade remedial projects solely utilising this technique are the norm.

    IRATA International’s rope access system is a safe method of working at height where ropes and associated equipment are used for workers to manoeuvre into and operate in difficult access areas. The advantage of using rope access methods lies in the safety and efficiency with which workers can get to or from difficult locations and then carry out their work, often with minimal impact on other operations and surrounding area. We combine our multi-trade capabilities with advanced rope access techniques to provide unique and cost effective solutions for demanding engineering and construction challenges.

    Safety & Efficiency

    The safety and efficiency provided by using rope access methods allows for greater flexibility in accessing work areas and performing inspection, repair, ongoing maintenance and remediation.
    The primary objective when using rope access methods is to plan, manage and carry out the work with minimal accidents, incidents or dangerous occurrences IRATA International has in place a continuously evolving regime of work procedures that members are required to follow and which are monitored for compliance to ensure that a safe system of work is established and maintained. This sets IRATA International member companies apart from other rope access providers

    Like any other method of working at height, the application of rope access should be regarded as a complete system, in which planning, management, competence and suitable equipment should be treated
    with equal importance, as each is dependent on the others to ensure a safe system of work.
