Industrial Rope Access is an internationally recognised form of work positioning, utilising qualified technicians to ascend and descend ropes whilst suspended in a harness. Training undertaken in-line with the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) guidelines and the International Code of Practice (ICOP) ensures technicians are fit to climb and perform rescues in a safe working environment.

SKN has been an approved IRATA operator for over 8 years and a strong advocate of using rope access techniques. Following considerable investment in premises and equipment, SKN has now opened a fully certified rope access training facility in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Candidates who want to develop their career utilising rope access techniques can be trained to IRATA Level 1, 2 or 3 standards, as well as undertake refresher courses. In addition, Managers of sites undertaking rope access operations can attend an SKN Working At Height Awareness Seminar to give them a better understanding of best practices.
