Why use TRL to supply personnel?

Most offshore and onshore operators have to employ companies now who have to ensure that their personnel are trained and competent by law. These service providers then have to send their own personnel for training to an external provider which is not cost effective or time effective this additional cost is then passed onto the client. Teesside Rigging & Lifting can literally eliminate this cost and time area because we have our own accredited training centre. Every man supplied by Teesside Rigging & Lifting will be assessed and approved with all the relevant competencies before being sent to site.
