  • Safety Training from experts in fall protection
    In August 2015, 3M and Capital Safety - two industry leaders in personal protective equipment and fall protection - joined forces to bring together an outstanding history of innovation and excellence in worker safety.

    Today, as 3M Safety Training our goal remains the same: to provide the very best training to ensure all your workers go home safely every day. The only difference is we’ve now added 3M’s skill at applying science to improve everyday lives into the mix. This means you can now protect the safety and the health of your staff even better with the exact training you need.

    So while the name may have changed, we’re still global leaders in fall protection.



    Rope Access Training

  • IRATA Rope Access Levels 1, 2 and 3

    Level 1
    The IRATA Level 1 rope access course is the entry level into the IRATA framework, and is aimed at delegates with little or no previous experience. The course teaches a delegate to operate industrial rope access methods under direct supervision of an IRATA Level 3 technician, including ascent, descent, rope changeovers, rebelays, aid climbing, rescue and hauling.

    There is a written and practical assessment by an external examiner in this course.

    Level 2
    IRATA Level 2 Technicians are required to operate at a higher level of skill than a Level 1 Technician, as a consequence those attending this course will be trained in advanced rescue and rope access techniques. There is an external written and practical assessment in this course.

    Delegates wishing to enter directly to IRATA Level 2 (based on prior experience) must contact us for information. The direct entry training course covers seven days including two days of assessment.
