Industrial Safety and Rescue Training

The basic idea of using modern technology in industrial situations is to replace the difficult scaffolding and pulley systems with rope techniques.

Safer, much more adaptable and cheaper, these techniques can be used in the cleaning of big buildings; painting and façade plastering; fitting and repairing of metallic structures, panels and aerials; dislodging unstable rocks from cliffs; in the securing workers who need to climb pillars to survey places that are difficult to reach. We can use the correct climbing equipment, together with ordinary industrial equipment, and our experience in vertical rock and mountain climbing, dance training and theatre performance, and high-angle rescues in mountains and cities.

In Portugal and in Europe people are starting to ask for the use of these techniques. Examples of some of our interventions: the security of workers repairing the Hotel Meridien façade, in Oporto; placing navigation signs in the pillars of the bridges Entre-os-Rios and Arca d'Alva; placing sensors on, and maintenance of, the meteorological towers in Aveiro and Estarreja, 30 and 100 meters high respectively; cleaning a structure in Auto-Europa, Palmela; worker training (blacksmiths) for Expo 98, mounting and dismounting advertising panels in shopping centres; dance performances in the vertical space (performance Aparições, Choreographer Joana Providência, Bruto Theatre, Ensamble Theatre, The Comedians Theatre "Os Comediantes", among others). Rescue training for professional firemen in Madeira Island.

In this sphere of action, Trilhos does technical appraisals and proposals accordingly to your needs, carrying out tasks and prividing training, or supervising workers.

It's behaviour training.

Outdoor training tries to develop, treat and change behaviours rather than attitudes. In fact, one can’t change attitudes out of context, but behaviours can be changed more rapidly; and each time more efficiency is gained.. Outdoor training is based on physical activity, incorporating metaphors for behaviour. There is no separation of learning and teaching; it is a continuum that has two poles: the teaching pole and the other related to learning and self-development. Those who are interested decode the metaphors, parables and symbols in such a way that they learn through the physical activity.

The purpose of outdoor training formation isn’t competition between teams which represent different enterprises. However, sometimes competition can occur, and outdoor training helps people to understand the disadvantages and the advantages of competing. The aim is to learn through reflection on behaviour. We don’t want to train only the elite; we aim for all people to learn from their own experience. What is important is reflection on participation in an exercise, no the exercise itself.

Methodologically, outdoor training has its basis in the dynamic of groups formed at the time. The teams are made up for a particular purpose. Groups can be formed by self-selection or from selection by the leaders.
