Ascent Safety:

Ascent strives to provide high quality service. Since we advise companies and government bodies to implement ISO and IRATA (or similar) standards it will come as no surprise that Ascent is certified NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2008 and certified (full)member of IRATA & SPRAT. To ensure focus within our organization we have split the company in two specialized business units.

Ascent Emergency Response is one of the main training providers in the Netherlands for first aid providers and first responders. Besides the “usual” high quality “standard” courses we provide a wide variety of specialised trainings. We facilitate these courses and trainings for private individuals but also for companies, educational institutions and several government institutions like prison services, police and fire rescue teams. 

Ascent Height Safety

Ascent Height Safety & Rescue focusses on height safety- and high angle rescue solutions for a wide variety of sectors variying from construction work to Law Enforcement Special Operations (e.g. SWAT, Anti Terror).

TAGS Systems:

TAGS® Systems was established in 2010 by Safe Tactics BV. When traveling around the world to train operators in the field of boarding and urban access we noticed that there was a lot of room for improvement on the equipment side. That was when we decided to develop a complete new series of Access equipment.

With help of top notch units around the globe we are rapidly developing innovative equipment to cope with the ever changing threats and operational challenges.

TAGS® high performance products are specifically designed for use in the toughest maritime, remote and urban environments. We are proud to say we are being supported by some of the most famous top notch units around the world.

Rather than designing products that look fancy, TAGS® offers products that work!

TAGS Launchers


Early 2018 we acquired TACTS BV; a well known tactical training and consultancy provider with an impressive portfolio and track record. We also merged the specialised high angle rescue and trauma care portfolio of another company within the group; Ascent Safety BV. Whereas Safe Tactics and TACTS where focussing on tactical end users; Ascent Safety focussed on governmental rescue organisations, NGO’s and private sector companies.

Joining forces we decided to continue as TAGS® Academy; a true ‘one stop training provider’ for high risk operations. We noticed that ‘lessons learned’ in a specific field could be applied to under different circumstances. Resulting in highly effective, super safe; field proven solutions, that help save lives


TAGS® is represented around the world through a network of highly competent “Channel Solution Partners”. Our partners and end users are supported by our team that consists of experts with many years of “hands on” experience in your field of operation. “For operators by (former-) operators”.
