New scaffold training facility in Stallingborough
A new purpose built scaffold training and working at height facility has been opened and immediately put to use at Catch, Stallingborough, North East Lincolnshire.
Catch which stands for (Centre for Assessment of Technical Competence Humberside) is already a first class site for developing and testing contractors working in the Humber chemical sector. The facility now boasts a brand new dedicated scaffold training and working at height centre.
Safety & Access is the first new working at height training provider at Catch that will be offering courses that include:
- CISRS Registered Scaffolder Courses
- CISRS Scaffold Inspection
- CISRS Supervisor Training
- Construction Skills Operatives, SSSTS & SMSTS Courses
- UKATA Asbestos Awareness
- PASMA Training
- SG4 & TG20 Training
- IOSH Directing Safety
Rick Statham, joint managing director of the Nottingham-based training provider said: ”We are delighted to announce our partnership with Catch, which has resulted in the opening of our new building and our working-at-heights training facility. We are looking forward to working with Catch to serve companies in the Humber region.”
“It is a fabulous purpose-built facility, it has passed all the accreditation visits and is the result of four years of discussions from conception. It is a great place, with fabulous clients on the doorstep and a real opportunity to support everyone.”
He also went on to say that Safety & Access works internationally and has enjoyed a long standing relationship with Total Lindsey Oil Refinery and other contractors in the area.
Scaffolder, Rob Greetham, 33 from Grimsby who was completing his CISRS Part 2 at the scaffold training facility said: ”With the amount of work that relies on working at height on the Humber Bank, this should have been built years ago,” he said, impressed with not just the 10m height available to learn in, but the different training areas and access platforms that have been created.
“I know lots of lads who have had to travel to Nottingham and Wakefield for their scaffold training, so to have this here makes good business sense all round. ”When I did part one of the qualification I had to go to Wakefield, which is an hour-and-a-half by train.”
Safety & Access are hosting an open event at Catch on July 26, 9am-3pm with presentations throughout the day that include: Scaffold Step & Fastgaurd, Competence Standards, SG4, Five Common Scaffold Faults, HAKI Stair Tower Demo and Available funding.
