Over 70% of all accidents in the work place are as a result of working at height. Therefore the health and safety of your staff who work at height is of major importance. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a duty on the employer to provide an adequate level of training to allow employees to operate equipment safely and competently. Sending those of your workers who work at height on a PASMA course is one of the ways to do this.
PASMA Access Equipment Training – PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association Ltd)
The PASMA course covers Legislation, Regulations and guidance affecting working at height with mobile access towers, PASMA Code of Practice, Product Standards EN1004:2004, assembling, altering and dismantling towers, incorporating current best practice for fall protection, inspection, inspection of completed mobile access towers and completion of Tower Inspection Records. It also covers hazards affecting the use of mobile access towers and how to avoid them.
The PASMA course is a one day course of a minimum of six hours and successful delegates will receive a PASMA photo ID card & certificate which is valid for five years. There are no pre-requisites to this course, although a basic knowledge and understanding of working at height issues would be beneficial.
