Our background

CAL was set up in the nineties to provide technical rigging solutions for the Wildlife TV industry and has been providing rope access, training and consultancy on a full time basis ever since.

We regularly operate in extremely remote forest locations throughout the tropic and temperate regions. From the Amazon and Congo to the towering forests of Asia and beyond.

Twenty years of providing safety at height for working in these extremely challenging and dynamic environments has earned CAL unparalleled experience in this specialist field. We confidently offer a variety of associated services: Rope Training, Canopy Filming, Scientific Research Support and Canopy Construction to name a few.

We hold full combined world-wide insurance for working on ropes in any environment and adhere strictly to UK Health and Safety Executive criteria wherever we operate. All of our staff hold extensive UK HSE accredited qualifications for working at height and we provide full risk assessments/method statements as a matter of routine.

So whether you are planning to work in Britain or Papua New Guinea you can rest assured that you are in very safe hands indeed.

Here are some of the many organisations we are proud to have worked with over the years:

A rather damp start to our @canopyaccess tree climbing course at @ntstourhead this morning. Still beautiful though. Autumn has arrived... #WetterThanAnOttersPocket #stourhead #NationalTrust #TreeClimbing #CanopyFun #CanopyAccess #Arborist #Arboriculture #Forestry #Training

#CanopyAccess tree climber and safety rigger James Hindle on location with the fantastic @SteveBackshall in #Borneo last week. Tune in to #BBC #Deadly60 to see what they got up to in the tree tops! Nice one guys 👍😎🌳

Great to be here in #Brazil - canopy climbing kit unpacked, ready to go. The search for a suitable tree begins. The #Amazon rainforest truly is in a league of its own, where every tree holds a universe in its branches. My kind of place! #BBC #Primates #NaturalHistoryUnit

A snapshot of life in my canopy filming hide. A small camouflaged canvas tent perched atop a metal platform 100 feet up in a tree in the Amazon. Gets hot and stuffy in the tropical heat, but it's worth it when you get to film rare and beautiful animal behaviour. #BBC #Primates
