Benefits of Membership

IRATA requires that member companies work in accordance with the IRATA Code of Practice and, by doing so, contribute to maintaining the prized safety record of the Association that is unmatched in the access industry; the details of Members’ operational safety records are required to be submitted on a quarterly basis and are independently audited.
