Why Train with Safety Technology



Don’t take our word for it. E.on’s training manager said “This is the most impressive and comprehensive site and training programme i have seen”.



We know how dangerous working at height can be, we know workers have families they want to go home to at night.

This is what drives us, it’s that simple.



From product development, to scenario based training Safety Technology has led the development of industry innovations working closely with training and client partners throughout the companies history.



For over 15 years Safety Technology has been training workers at height at centres in the USA, UK and Europe. An early partner at the USA’s largest training facility Safety Technology has led the way in GWO accredited training.
