Hi

Part of my responsibility includes managing our maintenance department, and whilst we have training, procedures and competent personnel in place, I want to look at specific access equipment training. We don't own access equipment so we hire it in and get instructions from the hirer to operate it, however I would like them to be trained more on hazards, precautions etc... the problem is most training organisations train you on your own equipment. Does anyone know of any training organisations that use their own equipment????

Hi Julie,

I know that HSS-Training and Speedy-Hire have both done demonstrations with their own equipment in the past at Seminars and Events - but I don't know whether they would offer you the same demonstrations on site.

We have also worked with another supplier and training company - EuroTowers Ltd, who have worked with us in the past on the Glazing side. I know the they are always keen to ensure that people are trained on how to use their equipment properly before leaving the equipment with clients.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're after though - it sounds like you may be after a Training Service alone, rather than a supplier who also provide training?

Let me know if you want any specific contacts for any of the above companies. Smile

Regards,

Phil
