Welcome to I.A Solutions news center
It all boils down to 2 simple things, maximising your personal safety and your work prospects.
IRATA is recognised globally as the industry leader in industrial rope access. It has developed its own safe system of work which includes its Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme (TACS), International Codes of Practice (ICOP) and audited member companies and their operating procedures.
IRATA’s safe system of work has produced an unprecedented safety record during its almost 30 years of operation. This system has been repeatedly shown, over 10’s of millions of man hours to be the safest most efficient rope access system in the world.
In contrast, IRAANZ is essentially an independent certification body without any formal safe system of work. It has no direct control over the delivery, contents or quality of NZQA’s rope access training modules. It also does not produce its own operating guidelines instead relying on Worksafe New Zealand’s best bractice guidelines.
Still not convinced? Well lets talk work prospects….
IRATA – recognised globally and accepted in over 50 countries around the world.
The industry standard for rope access work in the international oil and gas and resources sectors, including Australia’s iron ore mines and Alumina refineries.
One of only two rope access certifications recognised by the Global Wind Organisation for rope access work on wind turbines.
IRAANZ – recognised and accepted in New Zealand and a few states of Australia where it is generally restricted to the building maintenance sector.
