Pre training requirements
No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but it would be beneficial if delegates had a basic understanding of work at height issues.
Literacy & language comprehension are important requirements for any tower user. Similarly, the assembly & use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit & in good health & 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 use mobile access towers, they must bring them to the attention of their employer. This need not preclude them from using mobile access towers, provided their employer conducts an assessment & is able to put into place adequate measures, to take account of any difficulties they may have.
Operators who successfully pass the course will receive a PASMA Photo-Card & Certificate.
