Thanks for stopping by.  As a professional, I am sure you understand the importance of having skilled teammates and employees.  Training is an essential part of the equation.  Without training, it is like stumbling around in a dark room, trying to get where you need to go.  I believe We can help:  Hi, Doug Hansen here, I originated High Angle Technologies to offer Consultation, Training, and perform Speciality Work.   High Angle refers to the steep nature of the environments we often venture into.  While working in these high angle situations we hope we do not have to Rescue or be Rescued.  But the fact is, technical rescue is part of the game and we must be prepared to handle a rescue should an emergency occur.

I am proud to have teamed up industry leaders from around the world.  Over the last thirty years, I have rubbed shoulders with some of the best climbers and high angle workers in the world.  My work, my writing, and presentations for international rescue symposiums have put us in a position to provide world-class training which will assist you in finishing your projects quickly while keeping costs down, and maintaining a low-risk work environment (*Safe).  Years in the industry has taught me:

Introducing one of our Training Videos for the  Arena’s work access and fall arrest system; which we designed and installed in the Grid.

“Do we know, what we don’t know?”

We do not do “what we know,”

We do what we have learned to do.”

I would like to suggest one of two things, which I believe will of great value to you and your organization:

1. Have me stop by your work site and meet with you about your work projects.  From there I will share ideas and ways we can assist you in accessing those hard to reach areas or addressing safety and rescue concerns.

To keep it interesting I show how the principles apply to other areas.  PPSlide
A hazard has two parts, I train your team how to recognize these parts, and to evaluate what the risks or safety problems really are.  PPSlide
I discuss various work situations where these skills and tactics can prevent injuries and save lives. PPSlide

2. Have me stop by your business and present my 90-minute “Situational Awareness and Risk Exposure Training.”  It will prevent many unforeseen incidents and accidents.  Also, each participant will receive a certificate that can be added to their personnel file.  Being able to

show that your team has attended such training can assist in a situation where OSHA is involved.  Being able to show your team has this kind of training can help prevent getting citations, and if your company is fined, it can help reduce the amount of the fine; BUT most importantly, it will help prevent accidents.  As my dad taught me:

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure.”

If this makes sense, then give me a call and let’s talk about where I can assist you.  In fact, I will go one step further.   If finances are not where you would like them to be, or you are on the fence about the services I offer, I am prepared to offer some of my services at no cost to you.      For more information, you can either email me (Doug Hansen) at D.Hansen@HansenSpecialities.com or call me 801-664-3797

*With decades of experience, we now use the word “Safe” more carefully, by doing so it actually increases our safety.  When we label an environment (Place) as “safe” it is easy to let our guards down, “Why Not?  It is safe…”  Rather we label places as low risk, high risk, etc.    Staying situationally aware is the key,   We have a great 90-minute training session called “Situational Awareness and Risk Exposure Training” which **heightens our ability to recognize potentially dangerous situations.
