PASMA – TOWERS FOR USERS

Aim

This 1-day course is for all those who will work with and around mobile towers.

The course will develop your understanding of how to safely assemble, dismantle, relocate and alter a mobile access tower when using 3T or Advance Guardrail (AGR) systems.

PASMA accreditation is the industry recognised standard for working safely with mobile towers and many sites require operatives to have this card.

Course Content

  • Legal duties
  • Codes of Practice, guidance and information relating to lightweight access towers
  • British and European standards
  • Inspection and maintenance of tower components
  • Function of components and limitations
  • Practical assembly and dismantling exercise
  • Stability and tying-in procedures
  • Identification of hazards relating to tower scaffolds

Pre-requisites

A good understanding of spoken and written English as delegates must be able to read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual.

Delegates must provide their own PPE for the practical session. Required are:

  • A hard hat
  • Safety boots

High-viz vests and thin gloves will be supplied.

No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but it would be beneficial if delegates had a basic understanding of working at height issues.

Your role must involve responsibility for assembling, dismantling, altering, moving and inspecting mobile access towers. 

Since the assembly and use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and in good health and should, generally, not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of heights/vertigo, giddiness/difficulty with balance, impaired limb function, alcohol or drug dependence or psychiatric illness.

Assessment

Closed book with a pass mark of 80% in both a multiple-choice theory test and subsequent practical assessment.
