Health & Safety Specialists Reece Safety Launch Innovative New Mobile Training Unit


Specialist Safety Experts, Reece Safety, have launched a Mobile Training Unit to enable their specialist team to tailor training requirements to their customer’s needs.

The Yorkshire-based Lockout Tagout specialists have widely developed their business offering in recent years. With substantial time, money and resources invested, Reece Safety increased their offering to establish a Training Division, with LOTOTO, Working at Height and Confined Space Training as their speciality. All of these courses cover bespoke approaches for clients across a variety of industries – Manufacturing, Aggregates, Mineral and Chemical Companies being just a few.

Generally, it’s common for Confined Space training to take place within a designated training site, with trainees traveling across the country to attend the course. After travel restrictions and various roadblocks meant that this was far more difficult, Reece Safety has invested heavily in a Mobile Training Unit which enables remote training from any client site in the UK.

The introduction of the innovative new training unit comes at a pivotal point in the company’s success, as the company also recently announced it the training specialists team has more than doubled recently.

The Mobile Training Unit uses unique technology, with the internal configuration of the Mobile Training Unit simulator allowing for an extremely tailored approach to suit the requirements of any requested training.

The unit can replicate numerous working scenarios such as sewer manholes, mixing vessels, tunnels, duct or utility subways, with each training course teaching professionals how to use specialist equipment that may be required based on the scenario, such as Winches, Escape Breathing Apparatus and Gas Detectors.

In line with the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, regular training is obligatory by law across all companies that require their employees to work in any space of an enclosed nature, which comes with a risk of injury. The introduction of the Mobile Training Unit means that employees can keep up with regulations whilst no longer needing to book time away from site, with downtime limited to learning hours only. This in turn is set to minimize business disruption, both in terms of productivity and additional costs associated with travel.

Andy Graham, Reece Safety Managing Director said “In response to a huge influx of demand for accessible training options in line with the new-normal, we are pleased to have launched our fully accredited Mobile Confined Space Training Unit.

 “This has also allowed us to expand our team, so that we’re able to continue delivering the highest possible standard in training to industry professionals across the country. We’re looking forward to getting on the road and providing our expertise to those that need it!”.
