PTSG Access & Safety Ltd is one of the five business divisions of Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG). Its engineers operate all over the UK designing, installing, testing, inspecting and maintaining a full range of height safety equipment at buildings owned or operated by clients in all industry sectors.
Working at height is, according to the Health and Safety Executive, one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries in the workplace. The safety of operatives working at height should always be the first consideration, which is why the regular testing and inspection of safety systems is imperative.
All our work is completed in accordance with the appropriate standards and specifications (e.g. BS EN 795, BS 7883, BS6037 Parts 1 and 2, LOLER 1998 and the EU Work at Height Directive). Our certificates are the most comprehensive provided within the industry, giving over 2,000 clients peace of mind and a high level of certainty that the equipment being used is absolutely safe and fit for purpose – including:
|Mobile man anchors||Rail systems||Mansafe systems|
|Ladders and walkways||Guardrails, handrails and edge protection||Rope access and abseil points|
|Anchor devices||Christmas decoration fixings||Wind Turbines|
PTSG Selected For University Of Strathclyde
PTSG Access & Safety Ltd has won a tender for the testing and maintenance of height safety equipment at the University of Strathclyde.
Founded in 1796, the University of Strathclyde is a public research university located in Glasgow. It is the city’s second-oldest university (the oldest being the University of Glasgow), having received its royal charter in 1964 as the first technological university in the UK.
23,000 students from 100 countries are enrolled on undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the University of Strathclyde. It was the first university to be named University of the Year twice: in 2012 and again in 2019. It occupies an impressive 15th place in the best UK universities league table published by The Guardian.
Engineers from PTSG Access & Safety Ltd will test Mansafe systems, eyebolts, abseil anchors and ladder ties across 11 buildings on the campus. This will be done by a team of two engineers, who will be on site for two weeks a year for a minimum of three years.
The University of Strathclyde is the third Scottish University at which PTSG Access & Safety Ltd has been contracted in recent times to test and maintain height safety equipment. Engineers have also attended the University of Aberdeen – now 525 years old; and the University of Dundee – a red brick university, founded as a university college in 1881.
