SpanSet gain EUS approval for MATS Tower Climber and Rescue Courses

Launched in early 2020, the Basic Tower Climbing & Rescue scheme was developed in collaboration with the industry group MATS (Mast and Tower Safety). It’s designed to support the safety of those who work on masts and towers in the telecommunications and broadcasting industry.

The scheme provides a framework to support consistency and relevance in training provision and assessment of competence as well as the relevant requirements of HSE legislation.

From 1 Jan 2020, individuals climbing masts and towers and those who need to renew their current climbing training certificates, will need to undertake the Basic Tower Climbing & Rescue scheme available through Energy & Utility Skills (EUS) Approved Providers.

SpanSet are delighted to announce that we've recently gained this EUS approval for the delivery of MATS Basic Tower Climbing & Rescue Schemes.

Engineers can either complete a 3 day initial course (MATS) Basic Tower Climbing and Rescue Scheme for new starters, or for more experienced engineers holding the initial course registration, a 1 day (MATS) Basic Tower Climbing and Rescue renewal can be undertaken.

The Spanset training centre here in Middlewich, Cheshire is an approved EUS site and both courses are scheduled regularly throughout 2020.
