Boris Nets

Boris Nets are approved FASET trainers. The company has its own lecture and training centre and provides complete corporate training for those requiring safety net training in construction project management, Site Inspection and Riggers card qualification.

The company provides in-house courses to main contractors’ responsible for efficient build programmes and site safety. Most safety nets are installed by subcontractors, a working knowledge by the main contractor of good practice, current regulations and implications on budgets through effective planning can save downtime & many thousands of pounds.

Major contractors are insisting in the use of the CSCS/FASET approved safety net rigger’s card as a pre-requisite to working on their construction site. Boris nets operates an approved training centre specialising in site inspector training programmes and rigger's courses leading to the general safety net riggers card.


The training centre is also available to train in house staff to the general riggers standard avoiding the need to hire in specialists riggers for those adhoc installations. For more complex installation procedures the Boris Net can design, approve and or undertake specialist rope access procedures advising on appropriate anchor points that can save time & money later in the build programme.
