Company History

Founded in 2002 as a safety equipment supplier for work at heights, Safety Technology works closely with the Utilities and Telecom Industries supplying high quality fall arrest safety equipment and training.

Safety Technology is at the forefront of safety equipment and training delivery to the Utility industry and has for many years supplied products of choice such as the Cresto 829c harness, the 90115WP chokestrap and the Smartline self-rescue device.

After a huge surge in Wind Energy in the UK, Safety Technology was quick to recognise the need for skilled workers in the sector, and began to develop a range of safety courses for the industry. In 2010 the company gained RenewableUK accreditation and by 2011 were training individuals worldwide, clients including industry leaders such as Vestas, Gamesa, Dong and Suzlon.

It soon became apparent to Safety Technology that the industry was crying out for a one-stop-shop for turbine safety training in the UK. In order to offer this, Safety Technology identified the need to collaborate with other industry area specialists, subsequently forming collaborations with South Tyneside College and OffTEC.

We are continuously developing our services to meet the demands of the energy sectors, with an extensive range of onshore and offshore safety courses, high quality safety equipment, and health & safety consultancy delivered from strategic locations in the UK (South Wales, and South Shields), Europe (Enge-Sande, Germany), and the USA (IOWA).

In 2013 we gained GWO approval for Working at Height, First Aid, Fire Awareness and Manual Handling training and can offer combined GWO and RenewableUK approved courses from our sites.

We pride ourselves on flexibility and innovation to provide customers with the best service possible.

. We are constantly developing our range of safety courses and collaborations with industry specialists such as Offshore Marine Academy (OMA), South Tyneside College and OffTEC which allows us to provide a wide selection of industry required courses.

Our training courses for the Utility sector are specifically designed to utilise the equipment they use on a day to day basis. We cover courses such as Pole Top Rescue, Smartline Training and Ladder rescue which gives customers the confidence that their technicians are prepared for any situation.

Safety Technology Ltd developed a number of training packages for Military leavers in 2013 that allows them to use their re-settlement funding. The packages are ELCAS approved and give a basic grounding for moving into the Wind Energy Sector.

Our contribution to the Renewables sector was recognised when we were announced as the winner of the 2013 Wales Green Energy Award for our contribution to Skills and Training.
