Our History

Anchor Safe was Formed in 2007 by director Trevor Stead after he recognised a growing need for specialist height safety providers in the construction industry. In 2009 Nick Stead joined the team and together the two propelled Anchor Safe from a small family business with three employees to the nationally based company it is today.

In 2020 Anchor Safe acquired Sydney rope access specialists Townview Australia which was rebranded Anchor Safe Rope Access.

From humble beginnings, Anchor Safe has grown to be a leader in height safety, thanks to our dedication to best practice safety, quality workmanship and customer satisfaction.

Our Team

Anchor Safe employs over 40 full-time staff combining a wealth of height safety and construction industry experience, cementing our position among the most experienced height safety providers in the country.

We’ve handpicked a highly skilled team of accredited height safety system designers, auditors and installers. Our installation teams are all trade certified and experienced carpenters who have undergone rigorous height safety training, to ensure the highest levels of workmanship and safety.

We’ve put a lot of time and resources into building the best height safety team in Australia. We do not sub-contract our work to ensure our clients always get the quality, care, and professionalism that we’ve built our company on.
