Anyone whose duties include the need to assemble, use, inspect, alter, and dismantle mobile access towers should complete a PASMA tower scaffold training course. As well as meeting health & safety legal requirements, the knowledge that the training gives you will allow you to maximise your personal safety and that of your co-workers.

The Working at Height Regulations (2005) requires that the assembly, dismantling or alteration of Mobile Access Towers should only be undertaken by a competent person and a PASMA qualification acts as proof of that competency.

The PASMA Training course covers everything an employee needs to know about assembling, using and managing Mobile Access Towers in a safe way. It also covers the practical side of using high-level access platforms, including risk assessments and accident prevention, as well as health & safety legislation and regulations surrounding the use of high level access platforms.
