How to Ensure Success in the Rope Access World

How to Ensure Success in the Rope Access World

The rope access industry can be a very difficult industry to get started in unless you know somebody who knows somebody.


I am speaking from the point of view of somebody with 17 years of experience in this industry. If it can be done on a rope, at some point in my career, I have probably done it.


The most crucial part about entering into the rope access industry is landing your first job. Very few rope access companies want to employ you without experience, and you can't get experience without the job. This creates a closed loop and a barrier to entry.

How To Select your Harness

How To's. Harness Selection - Your Guide

The core of any rope access kit, or any height safety kit at all, is your harness. Unfortunately, not all harnesses are made equal, and not all harnesses suit all people. What works for one may be terrible for someone else. My personal taste is very minimalist. I am a little bit old-fashioned in this area and prefer a separate chest harness from my sit harness. The current standards call for a full body harness in all situations( fall arrest, restraint, work positioning.) Most people are aiming for a good balance between comfort, ease of use, affordability and durability.

My Chance to Give Back - ANZAC Day 2015

My Chance to Give Back - ANZAC Day 2015

Occasionally things come your way that enhance others' lives and leaves a legacy! This "helping out a mate" was exactly that.

A few weeks ago a friend asked if I could help install an ANZAC day memorial sculpture on Elephant Rock on the Gold Coast.

The simple answer was yes, but I didn't realise how important to the community and how many people the art piece would reach. It ended up being huge!
