We’re going Over The Edge to make a difference!

safety first

Over The Edge’s team is primarily made up of SPRAT and IRATA certified industrial rope access experts who, when not on an OTE event, spend much of their time in the oil and gas sector, performing building inspections or teaching courses. Each event site has a comprehensive Site Inspection & Safety Plan completed, and if every potential risk cannot be mitigated, then the site will simply not be approved.
