Our goal is to help build a strong safety culture in the workforce, reducing the frequency and severity of incidents which could cause harm to people or property.

We are the only company in the world to offer onshore coaching in a real offshore pedestal crane and a crane simulator.

Training programmes are accredited to ISO:9001, OPITO and NFPC in the UK and API RP2D in the US.
