Ascent Safety bv

Ascent Safety BV is providing innovative, safe & effective worksolutions for work at height, rescue and emergency first response. Our projects consist of consultancy, equipment supply, training, equipment inspection and service. We are able to provide turnkey concepts for very complex safety issues.

Over the last 1,5 decade we have become market leader in this unique field of operation with an impressive track record. We have built long lasting relationships with companies in the field of oil & gas, heavy industry services, telecom, construction, (renewable-) energy, fire rescue services, hospitals and government bodies like The Health & Safety Executive, military special forces and police special operations.

Ascent strives to provide high quality service. Since we advise companies and government bodies to implement ISO and IRATA (or similar) standards it will come as no surprise that Ascent is certified NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2008, certified (full)member of IRATA & SPRAT and accredited according to the GWO standard by TUV.

To ensure focus within our organization we have split the company in two specialized business units.

Ascent Emergency Response is one of the main training centres in the Netherlands for first aid providers and first responders. Besides the "usual" high quality "standard" courses we provide a wide variety of specialized trainings. We facilitate these courses and trainings for private individuals but also for companies, educational institutions and several government institutions like prison services, police and fire rescue teams.

Ascent Height Safety & Rescue focusses on safety and rescue solutions for a wide variety of sectors variying from construction workers to law enforcement special operations units (e.g. SWAT, Anti Terror, Technical Support Units).

Both business units provide innovative solutions based on thorough risk analysis. Solutions usually consist of three components covering the whole chain from risk mitigation to rescue casualty care:

  • Providing safe work procedures;
  • Training safe work procedures, safe techniques, rescue and casualty care; usually facilitated in our purpose built training centres in Rotterdam and Amersfoort;
  • Provide safe and effective personal protective equipment including maintenance & inspection (PPE Cat. III)

Ascent Safety BV is located in the centre of the Netherlands: Siliciumweg 26-28, 3812 SX Amersfoort.
