Industrial Rope Access Trade Association.

IRATA was formed in the late 1980s, as the result of an initiative by a number of leading companies involved in industrial rope access techniques, to provide a safe working environment for the industry.

IRATA, and its member companies, work to improve the industry’s safety standards, produce a set of standard guidelines and training requirements, and to provide a comprehensive assessment and registration process for operatives.

Despite having over 200 member companies, the accident rates for IRATA members have  been consistently below that of other industries.

Rope access training courses

The rope access training courses are classed into Level 1, 2 or 3. Technicians are required to successfully complete a practical and theory assessment - before being allowed to work under their level of competence.

In addition, Level 2 and 3 technicians must have worked for a minimum of 1000 hours. The hours must be logged by the employing company and recorded in the IRATA log book and should be signed by the attending certified IRATA Level 3 technicians or in the case of the IRATA L3 Supervisor by a client and/or the employing company.

IRATA Level 1 Trainee Technicians

Level 1 technicians can perform some rope access tasks including inspections of all personal rope access equipment, assist in rigging and non-standard operations and undertake a rescue involving descent - under the supervision of an IRATA level 3 rope access technician.

IRATA Level 2 Operative Technicians

A level 2 technician can rig working ropes, undertake rescues and perform other tasks (under the supervision of IRATA level 3 rope access technicians). He will also understand some legislation, safety requirements and quality assurance procedures relating to rope access.

IRATA Level 3 Supervisor

A IRATA Level 3 technician can supervise rope access work projects onsite since he is aware of all relevant work techniques, advanced rescue techniques, the IRATA certification scheme, general requirements and guidelines. He will also have completed an emergency first aid training.
