What kind of career opportunities will rope access training open for me?

Rope access is required in situations where a ladder, crane, or scaffolding would not be appropriate or practical.

Some examples of situations where rope access skills are valuable include:

  • Cleaning – the exterior surfaces of buildings need to be kept clean, and for really tall buildings the only realistic way to keep them clean is to use rope access. The most usual method is a suspended platform that is raised or lowered on a cable, with normally a crew of two persons.
  • Sign installation – installing signs on buildings or other high places often requires similar skills and equipment to cleaning at altitude. The dangers are actually higher when installing signs because you have more things that you need to think about, and of course dropping anything could cause serious injury or damage to people and objects at ground level.
  • Painting – painting bridges, buildings, towers, etc, also requires rope access skills.
  • Rescue operations – although rescue work requires additional training beyond rope access training, the skills you learn in rope access training will be useful in a rescue situation.
  • Building inspection and repairs – sometimes it's necessary to get up close and personal when checking buildings for problems. In those situations where the only way to get where you need to be is by rope
  • access, you must have rope access training in order to do it safely and legally.

This is not the limit of the kinds of work that may require rope access skills, but hopefully this short introduction provides some insight into how useful these skills can be.

Additional benefits of undertaking rope access training

When you participate in a rope access course, you are learning much more than just something that will help your career. You will be preparing your body and mind to overcome all kinds of other challenges and obstacles. It is an opportunity for personal growth as much as it is practical training that you will use in your job.

Just some of the benefits include:

  • Gain increased confidence working at heights. It's normal for people to be somewhat afraid of heights. Actually, scientific research has shown that the fear of falling is one of the most basic human instincts, and children don't need to be taught to be afraid of heights.

    They in fact need to be taught to not be overly afraid of heights at some point, but since most children never get that training, they have to learn to overcome it by experience. The heights we train people to work at are a huge level above what most people are naturally comfortable with, even if they're generally unafraid of heights.
  • Improve your situational awareness and ability to react to hazardous situations. There is no use sugar coating things. The instinctual fear people have of being at heights is there for a reason. It can indeed be very dangerous. This is why special training is required in order for people to work safely and confidently at heights.

    Our training in rope access prepares you for the real situations you can find yourself facing on the job. By performing training and simulated exercises, you can learn to react to things that might happen. For example, if strong wind is affecting your platform, you will know the right actions to take and the right ways to protect yourself and others around you.
  • Understand how to prepare correctly for working at heights. Using the right equipment is, of course, the most important part of preparation.

    Normally your employer is responsible for ensuring you have the proper training and equipment to perform your job. This doesn't mean, however, that you have no responsibility.

    You need to know how to properly secure your tools and materials to avoid dropping them. Dropping anything while you are working at heights is dangerous to people and property below you. Importantly, you cannot rely totally on vicarious liability to get you out of trouble, especially in situations where criminal negligence is alleged.

    Having proper training is essential, so if you are an employer you should ensure your employees receive rope access training. If you are an employee, you should insist on having the opportunity to receive this training. The risks are just too great to ignore.
  • You will gain valuable experience before facing the same conditions on a real work site. Everything in our training is designed to make you feel more safe and secure when you're working at heights, because the training will give you more safety and security.

    Simulating the conditions of a real worksite helps you react better when you are working on a real worksite. This is one of the reasons why you will get the best rope access training in Sydney from Atlas Access.
