Alongside their already comprehensive portfolio of accredited courses, Mentor Training are now pleased to be able to offer PASMA training for the use of mobile access towers, both at their approved training centre and on customer sites.
The standard one day course, which can accommodate up to twelve delegates, covers tower assembly, stability, repositioning, inspection, dismantling, care and maintenance and tower safety, including regulations and standards such as Work at Height 2005. According to these regulations, mobile access and scaffolding towers should only be used under the supervision of competent persons. Competent persons are those who are trained in fall protection, hazards and their reporting, maintenance and inspection, and safe and emergency procedures of work. These are all covered on the PASMA course.
PASMA is the most extensively recognised form of mobile access tower training in the UK, and only accredit courses by authorised training members such as Mentor. The companies authorised by PASMA are subject to thorough assessments and audits to ensure compliance with the standards. On successful completion of the course, all delegates receive a certificate and photo card to demonstrate their compliance with PASMA standards.
