AxcessRescue offers innovative, unique tower access and rescue training to electrical utilities. Our state of the art facilities in the NYC area, provide unparalleled opportunity for students to climb towers, ladders, monopoles, and other structure props providing training in the basic fundamentals of climbing and working safely and efficiently at height. In addition, basic and advanced rescue techniques are presented to provide for self and co-worker rescues. We provide the foundational skills at our specialized training facility and can further train on de-energized client structures.

We have developed unique vertical and dead-end ladder access techniques that are taught nowhere else in the world.

Our courses far exceed OSHA standards for fall protection and compliance with 29 CFR 1910.269.

All AxcessRescue tower access and rescue courses meet and exceed the following standards:

• ANSI Z490.1 adult training criteria in safety, health and environmental training

• ANSI A10.32 fall protection for construction

• Z359.2 standard minimum requirements for comprehensive managed fall protection programs

• OSHA regulations including CFR 1910.269 and 2017 Walking-Working Surfaces

We believe you will find our programs to be substantially improved over the current industry standard. Our courses are predominantly hands-on with an extensive variety of climbing and rescue scenarios presented in realistic settings, and incorporate new techniques. Students perform multiple skills and rescues and are given sufficient time to practice each. In other words, you are performing the task, not just watching an instructor do it. We are unrivaled in student satisfaction.
