What Is Rope Access?


Our team at Tundra Rescue provides rope access services to a variety of industries, and we are committed to increasing the safety of personnel who work at height by using modern and innovative rope access techniques combined with robust quality management systems. We use highly trained and efficient rope access technicians to get into work areas which, in many cases, greatly reduces the costs associated with using scaffolding or other systems that can impact business continuity with long setup times and shutdown requirements. Our services also include high angle standby rescue teams.

We currently provide rope access services to chemical plants, wind farms, construction sites, painters, property management, cleaning firms, manufacturing facilities, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Canadian Armed Forces, and others. We are constantly evaluating new ways in which using ropes can solve access and safety problems for different industries. In short, any situation requiring a mechanical lift, crane, or scaffolding may also be suitable for rope access.

All of Tundra Rescue's rope access technicians are accredited through the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT) and/or the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA). Many also have relevant additional technical and commercial trade skills. For organizations requiring more standard training and compliance support, we also offer work-at-heights training courses that are compliant with Ontario provincial standards.
