    What is a PASMA Low Level Access Training Course?


    What is a PASMA Low Level Access Training Course?

    The PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association) runs a variety of courses to enhance workers’ knowledge of low level platforms, their use, maintenance, erecting, dismantling and storage. Although platforms of this kind are not very high, they can still cause quite serious injuries due to crush injuries or similar.

    It is very important that even the simplest low platform is correctly erected, especially since they are often used for performances and conferences where a lot of people not trained in health and safety rely on the platform erectors to make things safe and sound. Like most health and safety courses, the PASMA Low Level Access Training Course lasts just one day but has influence on how a person goes about their daily tasks for ever.

    Top-up courses are recommended as not only does everyday life tend to erode good practice over time but also certain HSE (Health and Safety Executive) legislation and guidelines do vary now and again, so updates are essential. Where certificates are given, the ‘life’ of the certificate should be taken as a guide; in all other cases, every year or so is enough.

    Falls can be serious, even at floor level

    Although obviously the higher the platform the more serious a fall would be, a fall from a standing start can still be fatal, if a head injury results. All of a workforce should be constantly aware of how serious a fall can be and take every effort to avoid them happening.

    If someone does fall, simple first aid can prevent serious consequences, but if you are a victim of a fall and it is the fault of someone else, you might be eligible for compensation if you need to seek medical advice.
