    What is the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA)?

    Every industry has to have a health and safety policy in place but none more so than the construction industry where dangerous machinery and risky working conditions are commonplace. Working at height, working in harsh conditions such as in tunnels and in poorly ventilated areas are all part of the work involved, but the use of Mobile Access Towers, more commonly known as scaffolds, is extremely frequent. PASMA represents the manufacturers, users and suppliers of scaffold equipment in the UK and provides the training schemes involved in their safe usage. Training courses include the Towers for Users Course, the Towers for Managers course and Working at Height Essentials. Each course is designed to ensure that everyone who works around or on Mobile Access Towers is equipped to do so and is aware of the safety issues surrounding them. As injuries can be severe if someone falls from height it is essential that these training courses are put into practice in the workplace. Despite the extensive training offered by PASMA and other bodies, accidents still have the potential to happen so it is important to be aware at all times when using this equipment.

    How can accidents have the potential to happen?

    If training is used effectively, then the risks of injury are significantly reduced. However, if it is not used effectively, then an accident could potentially occur having serious consequences. Accidents may include falls from height, injury due to lack of personal protective equipment or accidents due to damaged or poorly maintained scaffolding. If you have evidence that someone else was negligent and you have an accident or sustain an injury as a result, then you may have a case for compensation. A personal injury firm like Accident Advice Helpline can assist you if you decide to make a claim.
