A manufacturer of fall-protection equipment has acquired the Technical Institute of Training in Height (ITFH,) a training-at-heights company in France. ITFH has been a specialist in training at height since 2001 and has 54 training programs. These cover a broad array of end users and vertical markets including rope access, wind energy, utilities, construction, scaffolding, and fundamentals of fall protection. With a team of 11 qualified instructions, ITFH conducts training throughout France at customer sites as well as in their two state-of-the-art training centers in Nanterre and Lyon.
Through this acquisition, fall-protection equipment manufacturer Capital Safety will continue to grow its training business which last April acquired TAG Safety, a U.K.-based training business. The two training centers of ITFH will bring Capital Safety’s global total to 14 training centers from which they are able to provide at height, hands-on, and classroom training to customers in a variety of simulated work settings.
“As leaders in fall protection, we hold a responsibility to continue to educate workers on the use and awareness of equipment that will save their lives,” says Capital Safety CEO Anders Pettersson.
