All our riggers are trained to BS EN 1263-2. Safety Net Services has set itself apart from its competitors by ensuring the quality and training of its workforce through minimal use of sub-contract labour.
Safety Net Services is one of the founder members of FASET - the trade association and training body for safety netting. FASET sets the standards for the supply, training and installation of safety nets in the UK.
All our riggers undergo a specialised NVQ 'General Riggers Training' course written by FASET industry experts.
Our new recruits undergo at least 200 hours of practical and classroom training; only once the NVQ test and assessments are complete can they apply for a full CSCS/FASET Safety Net Rigger Card as proof of their competence.
