Are you in the construction industry? If you are, perhaps you are already aware of the heightened awareness towards safety within the industry.
When working on a construction site, many things may go wrong. Workers may fall from high towers or scaffolding. A falling piece of debris may hit an unsuspecting worker down below. A worker is at risk at every moment when working on a construction site. Such risks, however, can be minimized by paying close attention to safety guidelines. In fact, many organizations have successfully reduced the accident rate to almost zero by generating higher safety awareness among workers. In addition, safety officers or supervisors go around to enforce safety guidelines.An inexperienced worker will not be equipped with the adequate knowledge to work safely in a construction environment. For instance, mobile towers are often constructed at work sites. What companies can do is to send their staff to attend mobile tower training courses. The PASMA (Prefabricated Access Scaffold Manufacturers' Association) offers such courses in London. All good training courses should consist of three crucial elements. The first is theory. Theory by itself is not enough. But it forms the basis for additional training. When it comes to practice, a worker with a good theoretical background will be able to understand the practical lessons better. The second element then, would be practical. How should a mobile tower be erected? What are the proper tying techniques? Such issues should be addressed during practical lessons. Finally, there are rules and regulations that all workers should be aware of. These are not rules and regulations set by the Company. They are the law that is stipulated by Country or State to help reduce the rate of accident at work sites. Workers do have a need to be familiar with such regulations.The PASMA mobile tower training course consists of all the above elements. The course identifies all the important safety procedures. Emphasis is placed on the hazards of erecting prefabricated aluminum mobile towers.After attending the course, workers should be able to erect mobile towers in the correct manner. Towers should be safe and stable. More importantly, employers can ensure that they comply with the law when they send their staff for training. The law states that no one is to undertake any activity unless he or she is competent to do so. After installation, it is the responsibility of the employer to inspect the equipment before they can be used. The course not only trains workers to become competent in erecting mobile towers. Attendees also learn to inspect mobile towers for safety.Course details:The PASMA mobile tower training course is a 1 day course. The required equipment is safety footwear and hard hat. Certification: Prefabricated Access Scaffold Manufacturers' Association (PASMA).
