About Us

Vertigo High Access Specialists is the recognised pioneer of Rope Access Services in Australia. Vertigo's expertise in providing specialist solutions to challenging tasks, complicated by high and difficult access locations, contributes to our over 30 year success.


Established in 1991, Vertigo specialises in providing multi-disciplined rope access project services to a wide range of industries. Through Vertigo's experience of challenging high level and difficult access work, we are able to provide lateral planning and operational solutions to both private and government sectors.


Quick to install and unobtrusive, rope access systems minimise disruption at ground level, enhancing site flexibility and maximising overall site productivity. Our rope access teams offer a single source supply, combining both access and contracting trade skills as well as inspection and testing skills. Efficient, flexible and above all safe, rope access techniques have, and will continue to contribute significantly to solving high or difficult access problems, both on and off shore.


The Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA), is the peak international body on rope access, and Vertigo is proud of its status as an IRATA Member Company. Membership requires compliance with the robust requirements set by IRATA, and verification by triennial audit. Vertigo is 1 of only 2 IRATA Operator Members in Victoria. Vertigo's multi-skilled work force of technicians and trades people are industry leaders in all facets of rope access techniques. All technicians are trained and certified in line with the IRATA Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme, a strict syllabus involving training by rope access experts, and independant assessment.


For each project, Vertigo prepare clear and concise work method statements, risk assessments and safety audits, and our Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) policies and safe working procedures are in accordance with current Australian regulations.
