What is IRATA Training?

IRATA is an acronym for the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association, which was formed in the UK in the late 1980s, to solve maintenance challenges in the offshore oil and gas industry.

IRATA produced the first documented certification scheme in 1992 (formerly known as the General requirements for certification of personnel engaged in industrial rope access methods) as a scheme of training guidance and qualifications focusing on safety. Since then, IRATA qualifications have become the industry standard requirement for personnel engaged in industrial rope access methods. This revision results from the experience gained in operating the scheme for many years and reflects IRATA’s commitment to continuous improvement.

Its formation was the result of an initiative of several leading companies, who had begun to use industrial rope access techniques, to provide a safe working environment for the industry. The rope access technique developed by IRATA is used in a wide range of repair, maintenance, inspection, and access work. Rope access methodology boasts an unrivaled safety record, short set-up and dismantling time, positive environmental benefits and removes the need for invasive access equipment or disruption to a work site.
