"Safety is at the heart of what we do"

We pride ourselves on our safety standards, it’s at the heart of what we do. 

We’ve taken the best consultancy around health and safety and suspending people in the air by consulting with Dr Christopher Robbins,  who is both a metallurgist, a Dr of metals, and as part of a long career in health and safety is the Auditor for IRATA -  the industrial rope access trade association

 …he also happens to be my Dad!
