Trust Workplace Access & Safety for Your Rope Access Inspections

Rope access systems enable workers to descend, ascend and cross ropes while suspended by a harness or work seat and are designed to protect from falls where conventional methods cannot work. Using a rope access system has many advantages, including being able to service difficult to reach areas, completing maintenance work without setting up access structures and there is no cumbersome equipment required.

However, the ropes used must be compliant with AS/NZS 4488.1:1997 Industrial rope access systems which specifies the requirements for materials and hardware for industrial rope access systems including fall protection.

The team at Workplace Access & Safety can ensure that your ropes are safe and compliant by performing regular rope access safety inspections on all your ropes and equipment.
