GRAHAM are committed to supporting the local communities where we work.

One of our most recent collaborations has been with Greater Manchester Fire Brigade who were seeking opportunities to train their Tactical Response Unit in realistic simulations.

Members of the Greater Manchester Technical Response Unit visited GRAHAM’s Weavers Quay Project for Manchester Life to undertake rope rescue training on one of the sites tower cranes.

The training programme offered the unit exposure to working at height whereby multiple scenario based operations were carried out including setting up a lower and retrieval system for a casualty needing a stretcher and an attendant if required and then an abseil off the crane cab itself.

The unit found the exercise extremely valuable and future operations at Weavers Quay are being discussed because the opportunities to train on cranes are few and far between with sites being under such tight restraints.
