The Work at Height Regulations 2005, require that the assembly, dismantling or alteration of Mobile Access Towers should only be undertaken by a competent person, or if being trained, under the supervision of a competent person.


A competent person is a person who can demonstrate that they have sufficient professional or technical training, knowledge, actual experience, and authority to enable them to:-


a.          carry out their assigned duties at the level of responsibility allocated to them;

b.          understand any potential hazards related to the work (or equipment) under  


c.          detect any technical defects or omissions in that work (or equipment),

             recognise any implications for health and safety caused by those defects or

             omissions, and  be able to specify a remedial action to mitigate those  



The training courses are based on a format and content agreed by all PASMA members and draws upon their collective, first-hand experience. Widely recognised and recommended by safety professionals, it provides successful delegates who pass a written and practical test with a competency certificate and an encapsulated, credit card sized PhotoCard.
