    Concept Clean, based in Milton Keynes, offers a wide variety of commercial and domestic cleaning services to its customers. The company’s managing director, Simon Dodson, was kind enough to share the following glowing praise for SAEMA User Training.

    Knowledge is power!

    Several of our operatives recently undertook SAEMA training, prior to using a BMU to carry out some cleaning tasks. Part 1 of the course provided a great amount of information to ensure we could be safe in the knowledge our team would ensure best practise when using any suspended access equipment. 

    Part 2, the practical element, was brilliant, it put any nerves and caution at ease, with a full guided introduction to the site, highlighting exactly how to operate the specific machine, and informing us of any potential hazards.

    Our staffs safety is our priority, and without undertaking the course, they would be operating blind, and unaware of any hazards and risks involved in operating this type of machinery.

    The SAEMA course is essential to ensure the safety and compliance of your employees and your responsibilities as an employer.
