Safetec Australia works side by side with Rope and Rescue Pty Ltd, and have a third party agreement in place. Rope and Rescue Pty Ltd delivers training and assessment under Safetec Australia. Collectively, the two companies have more than 50 years experience in Emergency Response and work together to ensure that their training practices reflect current industry standards.

Together, the directors of Safetec Australia and Rope and Rescue formed the Australian Mines Rescue Association Cooperative Ltd (AMRA). AMRA was formed to provide advice to clients in the Mining Industry about their Emergency Response Obligations, and to develop a level of skill in the industry. Shortly after AMRA’s formation, they were contracted by BMA Goonyella Riverside Mine to develop a set of Operational Performance Standards for their Emergency Response Team. Safetec Australia and Rope and Rescue use these standards in their delivery of training and assessment as well as using them to provide assistance and advice to numerous mine sites. These standards have since been adopted by a number of stakeholders in the mining sector.
