Literacy, Fitness & Health (Extract from the PASMA Code of Practice)

Since the safe use of mobile access towers requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any tower user.

Similarly, since the assembly and use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and 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.

If delegates have any problems with literacy or language comprehension,or have any doubts about their fitness to usemobile access towers, they must bring them to the attention of their employer. This need not preclude them fromusing mobile access towers, provided their employer conducts an assessment and is able to put into place adequate measures, to take account of any difficulties they may hav.

Qualifications & Experience

No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but it would be beneficial if delegates had a basic understanding of work at height issues
