General outline of the IRATA scheme

Rope access work can only be carried out in a reliably safe manner where people are competent, suitably experienced and trained, capable of inspection of their own equipment and subject to appropriate levels of supervision. Due to the potential hazards associated with this work, it is essential that people are properly trained in the use of the methods of access that they will use. IRATA has developed a formal training scheme and grading structure where workers are grouped into three rope access grades, depending upon their experience and level of assessment. These are: level 1: technician, level 2: lead technician (more experienced worker) and level 3: safety supervisor, as defined in the IRATA publication General Requirements for certification of personnel engaged in rope access methods. The basic requirements for the three levels are as follows:

 

  • Level 1 Rope Access: a technician who is able to perform a limited range of rope access tasks under the supervision of a level 3 supervisor.
  • Level 2 Rope Access: a lead technician who is capable of rigging working ropes, undertaking rescues and performing other rope access tasks under the supervision of a level 3 safety supervisor.
  • Level 3 Rope Access: a technician/safety supervisor who is capable of complete responsibility for work projects; is able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required of levels 1 and 2; is conversant with relevant work techniques and legislation; has a comprehensive knowledge of advanced rescue techniques; holds a current first aid qualification and has knowledge of the IRATA certification scheme.
