Safety training reaches new heights in Barnsley
A Yorkshire company which specialises in working safely when high above ground level has moved in to bigger and better premises to expand its business onwards and upwards.
Astra Access Safety Training Ltd has moved to a new industrial unit at the Junction 38 Business Park in Darton, Barnsley, where its open-plan building covers 50,000 square feet and reaches 18 metres high, floor to ceiling.
The company has invested £100,000 in this new workspace to create within it a mock four-bedroom house and 15-metre-high steel-frame structure – both for demonstration and training purposes. It has also installed a suite of classrooms and will incorporate new offices soon.
Director of Astra Access Safety Training Mick Aston (pictured at the new premises) said: “Our huge new base means we can improve and expand our comprehensive package of health and safety consultancy and training services – all designed to support workers operating at height, whether that is on scaffolding, mobile towers, elevating work platforms such as cherry-pickers and scissor-lifts, or simply on ladders and steps.”
Astra has worked with clients in the construction, utilities, cleaning and other industries for the last four years and targets is services at any business where people “get their feet off the ground”.
