Falck Safety Services – which traditionally serves the offshore oil and gas sector – has become the first such provider to be granted approval by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) for a wind industry specific course.

Designed for emergency rescue and escape training from wind turbines, the Hub Rescue training is a one-day course which will be delivered from Falck’s Teesside centre using its 23.7m wind tower.

The approval comes shortly after the training firm invested in a new Working at Height frame at its facility in Dyce, Aberdeen.

Falck was also approved by ECITB for seven additional training courses including, Confined Space Appreciation; Entry Low Risk; Entry Medium Risk; Entry High Risk, Working at Height, Manual Handling and Abrasive Wheels, which are being delivered from Falck’s two flagship training centres in Aberdeen and Teesside.
