We've got some news about our latest exciting partnership - with Papertrail


Papertrail CEO Ben Scholes travelled down to Dorset to meet the Vertex Instructor Training team earlier this month, and completed our training on Papertrail’s web-based safety management system.

The Vertex team is using Papertrail to manage inspections of all the critical safety equipment at Burnbake, and as Papertrail Certified Advisors, we will be assisting with the set-up of new Papertrail accounts for ropes courses in the South of England.

What is Papertrail?

Papertrail's roots are in outdoor education and adventurous activities.

As outdoor practitioners, the two co-founders experienced an increasing issue with HSE record keeping and staying compliant. Before Papertrail, there were no alternative systems available rather than paper records or a spreadsheet for managing safety of equipment.

Papertrail is designed for organisations who need to comply with LOLER, PPE and PUWER legislation, and provides huge efficiency advantages in this respect.

Papertrail is used by local authorities, adventure activity centres, arborists, climbing walls...the list goes on!

Vertex Instructor Training grasped the huge efficiency and safety potential of Papertrail immediately. Rather than repeating what it does here, we would like to encourage you to visit their website to find out more.

To start, see The Features of Papertrail to get an idea of what it can be used for.
