Rope Access Engineering

Rope Access Engineering Services

Rope access has proved to be an excellent alternative to conventional methods such as scaffolding and mobile elevating work platforms.

Rope access teams create minimal disruption, deliver fast and efficient mobilisation, and use no equipment that needs to remain on site overnight. No other solution offers this level of site security and safety. Rope access fast mobilisation minimises any impact to your business, limiting disruption to your production or services. Contact us to find out how our access solutions offer you cost efficiency while ensuring quality and safety.

Confined Space
MISTRAS provide City and Guilds trained and certified confined space site management teams with well established company procedures and documentation meeting UK HSE recommendations and Confined Space Regulations 1997.
We assess, prepare and monitor all types of industrial confined spaces to allow you to carry out your work safely and effectively. We evaluate your project needs at an early stage and provide and maintain your workforce with all necessary safety equipment such as radios, escape sets, tripods, gas monitors, lighting and entry systems.
For medium (NC3) and high risk (NC4) confined spaces, MISTRAS also provide dedicated highly trained onsite rescue and emergency first aid teams to ensure rapid extraction of casualties and emergency management, all of which are practised onsite with drills. Our services are tailored to your specific confined space, the duration of work, its location, the number of confined space operatives and the tasks/risks involved in your work.
Our staff, many from the armed forces or emergency services, are also fully safety trained and certified for a wide range of sectors with CSCS, CCNSG, MIST, IRATA Rope Access, BOSIET and Working at Height.
