Introduction to Beta Safety Systems by Alan Faulkner
I formed the company in June 2006.
Previously the companies that I had worked with had been tied into agreements with certain product suppliers. While this allowed completion of certain design briefs it also limited use of fall protection products developed by other companies. There were and are today a huge number of solutions that can be used individually or combined together to offer the best solution to a particular requirement when working at height.
I had built up a knowledge of the fall protection business over a period of 18 years. My knowledge developed over that period, in all aspects of working at height included design, installation, inspection and training on different fall protection systems.
After discussion with a number of suppliers, my company had access to a more diverse range of working at height solutions. The likes of 3M, Safety at Height and MCD all had highly experienced team members that worked with me to develop my own knowledge which was then used to provide the services we currently offer today.
Over the years we have developed a strong, vibrant business with an enthusiastic and well trained team. Team members from past and present have helped to develop our business to where it is today. Our position now is that of being at the forefront of the fall protection industry in the UK.
One of my fundamental beliefs is that economic pressures and budget constraints should not lead to a compromise on design and safety. Cheapest should not be the driving force behind the selection of a working at height solution.
The relationships we have built up with the likes of Portakabin, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and a number of internationally recognised Universities understand and agree with this principle. This has led to a recognition that the services and products we supply are some of the fall protection industries best although not the cheapest.
Our company continues to see installations done by other that frustrate us. The majority of our industry is in tune with our principles and has improved greatly over the years. Some however aren’t.
We are striving to achieve a standard of service and knowledges that allows us to act as a role model for those within our industry and have our company name recognised as the experts to consider for your fall protection and working at height needs.
My team and I look forward to working with you at some point in the near future.
