Why use Mr Plant Hire for your PASMA training

According to a recent study by the Health and Safety Executive 30.7 million working days were lost in 2017/2018 due to work-related illness and workplace injury.

The best way to avoid injuries in the workplace is by ensuring your staff are all up to speed with best practice in the use of the most hazardous equipment on your construction sites.

Working at height using mobile access towers is one of the most dangerous elements of working on a construction site.

PASMA, the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association, was established in 1974 and is the recognised authority for health and safety in the use of mobile access towers.

By ensuring your staff are up to date with their PASMA training, you reduce the likelihood of accidents and injuries taking place onsite.  PASMA certificates are nationally recognised and, whilst not a legal requirement, demonstrate that the PASMA licence holder has been trained to an appropriate standard for working at height on mobile access towers.
