PASMA Tower Safety week is here once again. It is running from 11th to 18th November 2018. It was established to contribute towards the reduction of falls from heights by promoting towers. As we are a PASMA member and your local tower specialist, we are proud to be a part of it. PASMA Tower Safety Week focuses on raising awareness of the most common dangers that are seen on site when working with towers. PASMA also promote safe working practices.
Falls from height are still one of the major causes of injury within the workplace and PASMA works continually to reduce accidents on mobile access towers through training, education and raising awareness. Within the last five years 186 people have died falling from height, 28,000 people have been injured falling from a height and 30%-40% of serious injuries or fatalities follow falls from height worldwide.
PASMA are the leading organisation within the UK for the mobile access tower industry. Their training courses set the standard in health and safety when erecting mobile access towers. They are also the most widely recognised access training standard within the UK. Here at Ridgeway, we are proud to be the largest PASMA training centre in Northern Ireland. Our weekly courses, held in our state of the art training centre, can cater for 1-12 members of your team.
