Falck Safety Services UK adds construction safety training to its portfolio

Published:  24 November, 2015

A leading safety training firm is building on its portfolio of services on offer with the introduction of new health and safety courses for construction personnel.

Falck Safety Services UK (Falck), which has 32 training centres across the world including four UK sites in, Peterhead, Aberdeen, Montrose and Teesside, has opened up registration for four CITB approved construction safety courses from its training centre in Aberdeen.

Expanding into the new market, the new courses will include Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) and both SMSTS and SSSTS refresher courses. The new courses are available for project managers, site managers, supervisors, business proprietors and client-based personnel working on UK Contractor Group (UKCG) sites.   

Valid for five years, the certifications will provide construction personnel with the knowledge and skills to ensure healthy and safety conditions for construction site employees, including the need for risk assessments and adequate communication on site.

Managing director for Falck Safety Services UK, Colin Leyden, said: ‘As a leading safety training firm, we are always looking for means to develop our training offering; not only to implement modern training techniques into our current programmes, but also to expand into new markets. Although well known for delivering expert training within the oil and gas industry, we are also working in partnership with other key industries to help drive and implement the highest quality safety training.

‘The construction industry, similar to oil and gas industry, has recognised the need for competence throughout the workforce and Falck are committed to providing the necessary training for this sector, offering the same expert instructors and service levels that our core oil and gas customers receive.

Falck already provides realistic training, in a safe and controlled environment, to more than 340,000 people each year within a range of industries including global oil and gas, shipping, renewable energy, military, maritime and aviation industries.
