The PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association) Combined Tower and Low Level Access Course is aimed at giving competence to all workforce involved in assembling, altering, inspecting, moving and dismantling mobile towers, folding low level room scaffolds and podium work platforms.
This PASMA Combined Course is really useful for anyone who ever has to work with a platform because although their work might normally only include one kind, the occasion might arise when they need to use something else and although much knowledge is transferable, full training is far better than making assumptions, because it is when things are assumed that accidents happen. The course is, like most health and safety courses, widely available and can be delivered in-house by arrangement which can be very beneficial when specific unique conditions apply. Although most people think of falling from a height as being a fall of a storey or two, in fact, any distance above the ground brings with it an added risk and even falling from head height can result in some very serious injuries, especially if the ground underfoot is rough and uneven as is so often on construction sites.
Training is half the battle
But the other half of the battle is for everyone to take extreme care at all times. Even with training and care, though, some people get injured at work and falling from a platform of some kind is one of the single situations that are most likely to cause life changing injuries or death. If you or a member of your family has fallen and been injured or worse because of someone else’s proven negligence, you may well find you have a claim for compensation, so it is worth calling Accident Advice Helpline today to find out.
