Glossary for acrobatic works and rope access works
Definition : Acrobatic works


Acrobatic works / rope access works / aerial works : Acrobatic or rope access works refer to all types of works, whether at height or subaquatic, which are performed by rope access technicians or building professionals from the public works, civil engineering or industry sector. Examples of rope access works: securing cliffs, works on rock falls protection, reinforcement of retaining walls or rock walls, reshaping and cable laying.


“The term ‘acrobatic works’ gathers operations ‘on buildings whether by nature or destination’, using climbing and progression techniques developed in alpinism and speleology, when scaffolding and cradles would be too costly or impossible.” From ‘Travaux acrobatique, calcul des forces de choc sur les cordes d’assurage’ de l’INRS (les notes scientifiques et techniques de l’INRS), December 1995
