Scaffolding training locations with Simian

28th January 2019

For nearly 15 years, the team at Simian has dedicated their expertise, knowledge and time to ensuring that scaffolders worldwide are well versed in scaffolding safety best practice.

During this time, we are proud to have seen significant commitment from businesses across the UK in ensuring that their workforce has the right knowledge to work safely when using scaffolding. This is of particular importance due to the fact that falls from a height are the leading cause of workplace fatalities.

However, throughout our time in business we have seen the gradual decline of accidents and fatalities that occur annually; this is a testament to increased awareness with regards to work at height safety, as well as investment by construction and scaffolding businesses to improve their safety standards.

Making scaffolding training accessible to all scaffolding professionals

The UK’s safety standards are regarded as the most effective in the world, and they are often used as the benchmark internationally, when it comes to safety and training. However, we recognised a gap in the availability of training courses and since then, we have endeavoured to bring our comprehensive training courses to more locations across both the UK and internationally.

From our first training centre in Warrington, year-on-year we have expanded our service offering to reach more and more scaffolders in need of training. Our ever-expanding range of training centres now cover the length and breadth of the UK, as well as a number of locations internationally.

We have created strong partnerships with leading industry bodies as well as a number of colleges, to ensure that our training delegates have access to excellent facilities to enable them to expand and develop their scaffolding and work at height knowledge.
