Ellis Fall Safety Solutions, LLC and Dynamic Scientific Controls were founded by J. Nigel Ellis, Ph.D., CSP, P.E., CPE. We are an organization of experienced and qualified fall protection engineering, safety and training professionals, dedicated to the implementation of Process Improvement (going beyond safety to uncover the roadblocks within the process that prevents employees from working safely and using safety equipment when required). With over 35 years of experience, we have trained over 20,000 managers and workers in fall protection techniques and procedures since 1970.

J. Nigel Ellis has been involved with tort cases for over 20 years and almost 1000 cases of very serious injury and death resulting from falls from elevation (including stairs and same level). This knowledge base has been woven into our site assessments, engineering, consulting and training courses.

Dr. Ellis is a founding member of the ANSI Z359 committee that developed the new Fall Protection Code which became effective in November, 2007.
