What is Rope Access?
Rope Access is essentially climbing and abseiling for industry. It’s a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used by cavers and climbers, which applies practical ropework to allow operatives to access difficult-to-reach locations without the use of scaffolding and cradles.
The reason for the success of Rope Access is simple:
it is very safe (fully endorsed by the HSE), rapidly deployed and de-rigged, and extremely cost-effective and non-disruptive (as compared with traditional access methods).
Skytek teams are self-contained, fully CDM-compliant, and are able to gain access and carry out their tasks with little or no involvement from outside contractors.
