Rope Access is a manual system of providing access which, by virtue of diversity of equipment & specialised techniques, allows access to many difficult locations.

Industrial Rope Access utilities techniques adapted from mountaineering, rock-climbing, caving & abseiling for use in industrial applications. With strict controls in place to ensure quality of training, on-site administration & work procedures, these systems provide a means on access that offers a high degree of safety.

Industrial Rope Access has been established in Australia for approximately 10 years & in Europe for over 20 years. This method of work positions has been carefully refined over the years by the Australian Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) in the United Kingdom & more recently adapted by the Australian Industrial Rope Access Standard (AIRA) for work in Queensland.

RAS is committed to the on-going development & implementation of safe work positioning using these systems.
