AHD Workshop

Are you looking to expand your rope access and rigging capabilities?

 The Safety Access & Rescue AHD Workshop may be the answer.

The Artificial High Directional (AHD) course is a three day workshop that is ideal for rope access technicians that are looking to utilise these highly effective tools at work. The focus of our AHD Workshop is on the Rock Exotica AZ Vortex and the SMC Terradaptor. Whether it be for confined space entry, geo/natural surface work, clearing delicate parapets, or areas where counter weight systems and roof jockeys are not available or suitable, these highly portable devices get the job done.

A sound understanding of AHD rigging enables techs, to not only accomplish their work more easily and efficiently, but also develop a skill set that will aid in problem solving those tricky jobs. Over the three days you will look at the many different ways rope access technicians can benefit from using AHD’s for work purposes. This is not a rescue course … the workshop is aimed at real life work scenarios.

Course Outline
The first day of the AHD Workshop is largely theory based covering topics such as equipment ratings, vectors, resultant forces and then looking at some basic configurations.

Days two and three will be spent out in the field where you will look at load manoeuvring and access setups based around the following formations:-
  • Tripod
  • Bipod
  • Monopod/Gin pole
  • Luffing A frame
  • Easel leg A frame
  • Sideways A frame
