Our 5* Reviews

I was told by my company that I had to attend a working at height awareness course, I have worked in this industry for over 30 years and my thoughts were what can an instructor teach me about this industry.

I was totally blown away at the trainer’s knowledge, especially on the legal side, I had no idea of the risks that I had taken for granted or the repercussions that I could face if I did not comply. 

Ryan Fox

Interesting, the information covered was a lot to take in, and I now understand the trainers comments that apart from working at height awareness, I should also complete a practical use of equipment that I use in my works.

Thank you Richard excellent course.
