About Ellis Fall Safety Solutions

Ellis Fall Safety Solutions, LLC and Dynamic Scientific Controls is a company comprised of fall safety professionals who are experienced in all facets of protection engineering. Our organization was founded by J. Nigel Ellis, Ph.D., CSP, P.E., CPE. Our centralized focus is on developing safety solutions that aid our students in learning the best safety methods and preventative steps that are needed at elevated heights.

Our goal is to go beyond basic safety measures in order to uncover any potential roadblocks that may exist as employees strive to work safely using their required equipment. We have more than 35 years of experience and we have since our inception, trained more than 20,000 managers and their employees on the basic tenets of fall protection procedures and techniques since 1970.

Our founder J. Nigel Ellis has been involved in many tort cases and in close to 1000 cases, death or serious injury resulted from falls from high elevations. More than 20 years of experience with these cases have been integrated into course material, site assessments, consulting, engineering, and training courses.

In addition to onsite training, EFSS also provides E-education and e-learning in order to better reach our students. Expert assistance and training is now available wherever you have access to an internet connection.
