Why Rope Access

Rope access refers to a set of techniques where ropes and specialized hardware are used as the primary means of providing access and support to workers. Generally a two-rope system is employed: the working rope supports the worker and the safety rope provides back-up fall protection.

Health & Safety

One of the prime motivations for the formation of SIRAT in 2021 was the recognition by leading practitioners that the existing legislation did not cover rope access techniques. In the intervening years SIRAT has worked closely with the SPRAT to formulate working philosophies for regulated rope access.

Membership Audit

All companies wishing to become members of SIRAT must be audited by the association to confirm that they are working to the guidelines. Audits have both technical and quality assurance components to assess all aspects of rope access management.

SIRAT members provide clients with method statements for any operation involving rope access. By identifying potential hazards and through effective risk management SIRAT companies can produce a safe system of work. This progressive and proactive stance has led to documented accident rates being very low when compared with other access industries.

Training & Certification

All technicians working within the industry are required to be trained and assessed in accordance with the SIRAT “Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme. After training, the technicians undertake an independent assessment and, if successful, are registered with SIRAT and issued a log book and identification card.
