PASMA Training

Course Introduction

Current legislation requires that you (and your Supervisor/Manager) are trained in the safe use of work equipment, which includes Mobile Access Towers. The official PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association) certification satisfies the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

This course is aimed at users of mobile access towers (both alloy and fibreglass) and instructs delegates on how to safely erect, move, inspect and dismantle mobile access towers. The course is recognised by the CITB and the HSE.
