Who should attend:
Working at Height Regulations (2005) require that the assembly, dismantling or alteration of Mobile Access/low level Towers should only be undertaken by a competent trained person.
The PASMA accreditation is the most widely recognised qualification for safe mobile tower use. The course is delivered to PASMA guidelines – delegates must pass a theory test before the practical assessment.
Since the assembly and use of mobile towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit, 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.
