About PASMA Training
What is PASMA?
PASMA stands for "Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association" – a bit of a mouthful, but their work is incredibly important. They help standardise the construction of alloy towers worldwide and set stringent guidelines to ensure minimal customer injury. Not all accidents can be avoided, but PASMA, like IPAF, does important work to ensure this is as infrequent as possible.
What is PASMA Training?
PASMA training is for people involved in the safe assembly, movement, disassembly and safety inspections of mobile access towers used when working at height. As training is required by law (Work at Height Regulations (2005)) before anyone can use a mobile access tower, attending a PASMA course is essential before work on a mobile access tower can be conducted. On this course, you will learn the safety and procedures for assembling, disassembling, and manoeuvring mobile alloy towers
