Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has won a tender for the testing and maintenance of height safety equipment at the University of Strathclyde.

Founded in 1796, the University of Strathclyde is a public research university located in Glasgow. It is the city’s second-oldest university (the oldest being the University of Glasgow), having received its royal charter in 1964 as the first technological university in the UK.

23,000 students from 100 countries are enrolled on undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the University of Strathclyde. It was the first university to be named University of the Year twice: in 2012 and again in 2019. It occupies an impressive 15th place in the best UK universities league table published by The Guardian.

Engineers from PTSG Access & Safety Ltd will test mansafe systems, eyebolts, abseil anchors and ladder ties across 11 buildings on the campus. This will be done by a team of two engineers, who will be on site for two weeks a year for a minimum of three years.

The University of Strathclyde is the third Scottish University at which PTSG Access & Safety Ltd has been contracted in recent times to test and maintain height safety equipment. Engineers have also attended the University of Aberdeen – now 525 years old; and the University of Dundee – a red brick university, founded as a university college in 1881.
