Safe Practices

SPRAT Safe Practices For Rope Access Work

SPRAT has written this document to provide guidance and information on acceptable ways of engaging in rope access work. Similar to the IRATA ICOP, this document is designed to protect technicians and employers from the hazards of work at height.

Certification Req.

Certification Requirements For Rope Access Work

This document outlines SPRAT's requirements for advancing within their certification scheme. When it comes to your SPRAT syllabus, this document will guide you advancing successfully up the SPRAT levels.


Job Hazard Analysis

The Job Hazard Analysis is a step by step guide towards helping you identify hazards on a work site and implementing controls so that hazards are eliminated. Whether you're L1 or L3, this practice is essential for ensuring safety at work.

IRATA Resources

These are the IRATA resources you'll want to have on hand during your training AND also when you work. To access these and other great IRATA publications, please visit:


International Code Of Practice

Think of this as the blueprint on how to act, think, and be an IRATA technician. When in doubt, this document is the one you look to for answers. Everyone needs to be aware of the ICOP but the best IRATA techs are those that know what's actually in it.


Training, Assessment, Certification Scheme

Similar in importance to the ICOP, the TACS is your source for anything related to IRATA training and certifications. When it comes to your level's syllabus, the TACS outlines the requirements that are expected during assessment day and what it takes to succeed.

Safety Bulletins

Learning From Each Other Keeps Us Safer

IRATA member companies are required to report incidents each quarter to the UK head office. This accountability ensures we prevent others from making the same mistakes. It also allows us to catch any patterns and to put new regulations in place to improve.

Edge Management

Prevent Damage To Your Anchor Lines

This poster from IRATA is one that will be referenced frequently in your IRATA training, regardless of level. Protect your ropes and stay safe! Learn from others and don't make the same mistakes!
