A specialist UK facility for

access equipment testing & training

What we do...

A UK-based Certification Body, Test Laboratory and training facility that specialises in access equipment. For people who care about height safety, from people who feel the same way. From step ladder testing to scaffold tower testing, we can help! 

Our premises were designed from top to bottom (from the 25m high roof to concrete floor, in fact) with the Work at Height industry in mind. We work with and are supported by PASMA and the Ladder Association, the leading not-for-profit industry bodies in their sectors.

Product testing

Everything from component testing right up to full product testing in our temperature-controlled laboratory.

Product certification

Gain your TargetMark and Certificate of Conformity, proving your product and production method conform to standards.

Training facilities

Your delegates will love our unique, purpose-built and spacious environment for Work at Height training.

Work at height research

Part of our mission is gathering insights that can help make it safer for people to work at height.


When you see the T&RGETMARK, you know you’re buying a product that has been independently tested by Test & Research Centre to ensure both the product and its production method comply with a published Certification Scheme. The T&RGETMARK is Certification Mark, owned and managed by Test & Research Centre, and applied to qualifying products as a mark of quality assurance.
