SAEMA is the provider of the best training and guidance in the temporary and permanent suspended access industry. Early last year we launched SAEMA User Training to enable those who work at height to be assessed on their technical understanding.

We are also pleased to share the following from the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
Wednesday 31 August marks World Distance Learning Day, which embraces learning that takes place outside of a physical classroom.
IOSH is taking this opportunity to celebrate all the people who have improved their skills and knowledge in this way.
Around 100,000 delegates have completed an IOSH e-learning or virtual course since the start of 2019, helping them to make an even greater contribution to workplace health and safety. Check out all the options.
The rise of distance learning
World Distance Learning Day aims to raise awareness of the learning resources available and celebrate how the far the concept has advanced – from courses delivered by post to high-quality online sessions.
Virtual training became even more important during the Covid-19 pandemic, with IOSH offering additional courses as e-learning.
Here are the top five benefits:
- convenience – learn from your home or office
- no travel – reduce your impact on the environment
- flexibility – study at a time to suit
- diversity – meet a wider range of delegates
- save money, through cheaper courses and no travel/accommodation costs.
