The UK’s leading materials handling trainer, Mentor Training, has won accreditation to deliver PASMA courses for the use of mobile access towers from its approved training centre, as well as on customer sites nationwide.
Under current legislation, mobile access and scaffolding towers should only be used under the supervision of competent persons who have been trained in fall protection, hazards and their reporting, maintenance and inspection, and safe and emergency procedures of work.
All of these subjects are covered by the standard, one-day PASMA course, which can accommodate up to twelve delegates. The syllabus covers tower assembly, stability, repositioning, inspection, dismantling, care and maintenance and tower safety, including regulations and standards such as Work at Height 2005.
PASMA is the most extensively recognised form of mobile access tower training in the UK. Accredited courses are only available through authorised training members, such as Mentor. These companies are subject to thorough assessments and audits to ensure compliance with the standards.
On successful completion of the course, all delegates will receive a certificate and photo card to demonstrate their compliance with PASMA standards.
Mentor managing director Richard Shore explains: "The best way to ensure your operators work safely and in accordance with Work at Height regulations is to provide them with the correct training. PASMA makes an excellent addition to our already comprehensive portfolio accredited courses."
