Here at 5th Point, we have established ourselves as global leaders in the IRATA International Rope Access industry. Operational projects are taken on with due care and consideration – ensuring our client has the complete package – exceptional staff, with the right qualifications and experience for the project at competitive rates.
Global Leaders in Rope Access
Our legacy is established through the close working relationship we have with IRATA International. Multiple team members are involved with the local Regional Advisory Committee and IRATA International Committees. Each and every employee of 5th Point has an individually tailored professional development plan, with an on-going focus towards training and education – not only in their vocational trade field, but within rope access as well.
As an IRATA Training Member company, we ensure everyone goes through regular training, working closely with our IRATA Instructors and Assessors. This ongoing, hands on learning ensures that each personnel work well within a team, strives to excel on the job, and above all – puts health and safety first.
What We Offer
5th Point can supply Level 3 Rope Access Safety Supervisors, along with individually selected rope access technicians with applicable trades to work on projects. Each crew is backed by a close-nit operational project support team.
We have an IRATA Auditor on the management team – ensuring compliance at every stage of the project.
We focus on attaining excellence through effective communication on all projects, to ensure a seamless pathway is established. This allows for the timely completion of operational rope access projects, through the efficient use of the right personnel for the task at hand.
We specialise in working with Engineering firms that operate in areas such as:
- Mechanical Maintenance
All Project Leads, IRATA Level 3 Supervisors and additional Rope Access Technicians have the experience and trade skills applicable to the job – we don’t just supply a rope tech. We supply personnel who have a core understanding of the project – for example, this means you get experienced Mechanical Fitters or Riggers who are IRATA Level 3 Supervisors.
Attention to Detail
We bring the strict, audited IRATA Member Company systems – direct to your project. All personnel are inducted through all of our workplace documentation by team leaders, ensuring they have a comprehensive understanding of how and why this documentation is in place, how it controls the hazards associated with our work and the repercussions of what can happen if it isn’t followed. All operational projects are conducted in line with the IRATA International Code of Practice, with support from the IRATA Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme.
5th Point projects are managed by IRATA Level 3 technicians that also work as IRATA Instructors that like to use gear as efficiently as possible to allow for a better work flow and great attention to safety on the job. We use the exact gear that is needed to complete the job, instead of sending out a stock-standard kit.
Highly Selective Recruitment
5th Point trains over half of all IRATA International candidates in Australia and New Zealand. We train a lot of people. We keep an eye out for excellence, recruiting technicians who compliment the core values of 5th Point, have appropriate experience and relevant trade skill qualifications.
