Sydney, Australia, July 24, 2014 --( Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment has announced the grand opening of their New Fall Protection Training Centre in Winnellie, Northern Territory. Capital Safety has invested in the 550 square-metre all weather training facility in order to make it the most modern training facility around.

Some of these included Power & Water, Laing O'Rourke, JKC, GTNT, Leighton, Sunbuild, Monadelphous and ConocoPhillips.

“The Northern Territory and Darwin in particular is experiencing a very demanding period of industrial activity resulting in an influx of skilled workers from within a broad range of disciplines,” said Ashley Campbell, National Manager, Training & Rescue for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand. “As the world’s largest manufacturer of fall protection equipment it is our responsibility to promote, support and educate the workplace in safe work practices when it comes to working at height, in confined spaces and rescue procedures.”
