Workplace Rope Access & Restraint

If your workplace environment requires either roped access, positioning or restraint it is important that you understand how to work within the regulations which govern this area activity.  At Glenmore Lodge our expertise in rope work and steep access is centred on the sporting activities of climbing and mountaineering which do not fall under the HSE Working at Height Regulations http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg401.pdf  .  If you are working or deploying staff within environments where a fall from height is possible, it is important that you understand your responsibility to comply with HSE guidance and we would therefore refer any such enquiry to expertise within this field.  Our contacts are specialists in combining remote settings and Work at Height Regulations.
