Rope Access Overview

Rope access is a specialist method of accessing and working at height in the offshore oil and gas industry, providing quick access where scaffolding installation or personnel lifting equipment options may be impractical, uneconomical and increase exposure to dropped objects.  Rope Access (RA) is an extremely safe method of access when carried out by qualified and experienced personnel, supported by an accredited and compliant company. 

At Allrig we operate to the absolute highest standards in the industry, including maintaining International Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) membership and employing only IRATA certified RA Technicians.  Allrig performs all RA activities in strict compliance with IRATA Guidelines and Allrig's Safety Management System.  We conduct regular internal audits to test our systems and welcome the same from Customers.
