Shield Health & Safety adds new VNA Escape Training to its portfolio

Shield Health & Safety are now able to offer Abseil Escape from VNA/Man up/MEWPS

“Trucks that are designed to elevate the operator position more than 3000mm above ground level shall be provided with means by which the operator can reach the ground safely in the event of the operator position becoming fixed in the elevated position”

In an emergency situation it is important for your staff to have the correct knowledge & training to escape from working at height equipment as safely as possible.

Some of these machines are already equipped with a rope evacuation system, where this is the case, regular practical training is necessary on the correct use of the system.

Our courses cover an introduction to the specific equipment as fitted to your machine followed by controlled escapes and descents from increasing heights until your staff are happy and proficient in the use of the equipment.


All of our training is risk assessed, carried out to a safe system of work and uses back-up support systems where necessary.

All our training is conducted ‘on-site’ as this is the real environment that your employees will be using on a day-to-day basis. We can deliver training and assessment courses, including periodical re-assessment or re-training where necessary.
