Why Use an IRATA Member Company?

*numbers accurate as at 01 July 2024

IRATA companies complete their work with confidence and assurance, the certainty of expertise and the value of a service that has proved itself around the world. The training given to IRATA technicians follows a strict work based syllabus that delivers highly committed personnel who are determined to deliver safe working. Those conducting the training are rope access experts, not general work-at-height instructors, and have many years of experience.

The IRATA assurance of safe and responsible working is based on:

  • Audited and regularly re-audited member companies;
  • Robust membership entry criteria;
  • Many thousands of rope access technicians who have been thoroughly trained and are required to re-train every three years;
  • The independent assessment of every IRATA trainee technician wherever in the world he or she is trained;
  • An unrivalled level of site supervision;
  • Mandatory work procedures that are consistent wherever IRATA teams operate.

Working at height safely is not achieved without diligence and application. IRATA’s safe working record has been verified in its unique Work and Safety Analysis that has been produced for the last 18 years.

The document is produced from member company statistics and produced by IRATA Head Office.

IRATA is the most recognised professional global authority in industrial rope access with member companies in every continent and qualified technicians in over 50 countries. The Association is at the forefront of developing and diversifying rope access as a work solution and progresses its two-rope, safety first methods into new regions every year.
