IRATA launch technician checkRope Access USA
IRATA have opened their membership list to employers wishing to verify the certification level of their crew members.
If you know a rope tech’s surname and IRATA number you can search the IRATA membership database to confirm their valid level and certification expiry date.
The system has been live for around one month and IRATA have claimed it’s already uncovered several cases of fraudulent documentation.
Go to the IRATA verification website to check up on your crew-members today.
Here at Rope Access USA we fully support this move to provide transparency for employers and crew members. This industry trades on its safety record and anyone putting that in jeopardy with fraudulent qualifications does not belong in it.
We will be monitoring the situation over at SPRAT to see if they can come up with anything for their members.
