In 2013 PASMA training centres were responsible for training over 65,000 people to work at height safely. The number, a new record for the mobile access tower association, is an increase of almost 10% from 2012’s figure.
This latest rise is in line with PASMA’s progress over recent years. At the beginning of this year there were around 320,000 active PASMA cards in circulation, the result of a series of steep increases over the past five years.
PASMA training courses are now said to be recognised as the industry standard. As a result, health and safety professionals increasingly specify the PASMA certificate of competence and photocard as the only acceptable proof of competence when using mobile access towers as required by the Work at Height Regulations (WAHR).
