The IRATA safety record is the only one of its kind produced specifically for rope access in the world. Unlike many rope access companies and associations we at Dragon will NOT provide a second rate training scheme or qulaification but DO provide a fully compliant service within the rigorous proven IRATA system

Dragon Safety Systems has achieved better than the IRATA accident rate since inception.

Excerpt from IRATA comissioned statistical analysis of company returns:

Rope access operatives are often working in situations where it could be difficult for their supervisors to clearly see what they are doing. In effect operatives are therefore partially or largely working on their own and this is possibly the main reason why the person causing the incident or allowing it to happen, is the operativesí themselves. It is clear important therefore that novices are only expected to work in situations where the supervision can be as effective as possible, remembering that if something can go wrong, then a partially trained and inexperienced person is the most likely to let it happen. M.James July 2006 ex HSE senior inspector UK Gov.

At Dragon we supply experienced L3 Supervisors and recognizing feeback from safety analysis supervise all clients company's personnel closely so that they may gain experienec in a controlled and careful manner.
