Riggers' Training

FASETAll 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.
