What is rope access?

Rope access is a system of work positioning, utilising skills and equipment developed from the climbing and caving world. These skills have been applied to industry work and adapted specifically for maintenance and cleaning. Rope access is now regarded by many companies and the HSE as a viable alternative to scaffolding and other more traditional methods of access.

With a skilled and reputable workforce, we offer a wide range of Industrial Rope Access services. All our operatives are IRATA trained and accompanied by a Level 3 supervisor on all projects. Dynamic Access London provide a full Risk Assessment and Method Statement for every Industrial Rope Access project we embark on, all of our operations conform to ISO 22846 – the code of practice for use of Rope Access for industrial purposes. We also follow the IRATA International Code of Practice.

IRATA’s most recent statistics demonstrate how safe Industrial Rope Access is, see more information on IRATA Statistics.
