What is PASMA training?

Posted: December 13th, 2012 by Dermot comment-icon Comments disabled

If you work within the construction industry, you may have undergone working at height training. This training is essential for all businesses where working at height is a requirement, as it enables them to adhere to the 2005 Working at Height Regulations.

These regulations also require businesses to properly train workers in the safe assembly, movement, alteration and dismantling of mobile access towers. These towers are regularly used in the construction industry, and they can also be dangerous if the proper health and safety training is not carried out.

This is why health and safety training course providers are now offering PASMA training. The Prefabricated Access Suppliers & Manufacturers Association (PASMA) is the lead trade association for the mobile access tower industry, and this is the body which backs the following training courses:

Standard PASMA training – designed for anyone who will be responsible for assembling, altering, dismantling, inspecting or moving mobile access towers

Low level PASMA training – for people responsible for using units under 2.5 metres in height

Combined standard and low level PASMA training

PASMA management training – designed for people who oversee the work of PASMA-certified operatives on site, helping them to ensure that work is properly organised, safe and carried out by properly trained, safe operatives.
