With our roots starting in Oil & Gas, our purpose-built safety and induction training facilities have been equipped to simulate many medium-to-high-risk environments – lending themselves in particular to those of oil and gas and mining sites.

Our confined space entry and confined space rescue simulators, working from heights and heights rescue and training equipment at our training facilities allow students in the mining space to really immerse themselves in simulated learning environments.

Harness Instructors have been hand-picked from a global stage and have successfully implemented a human factor approach to our programs.
