WernerCo has delivered training for all customer facing staff at its Maldon facility to highlight safe working practice when using towers. The initiative was held during PASMA Tower Safety Week, which took place between 15th–21stMarch,
WernerCo staff took PASMA accredited tower training to ensure they are fully qualified and up to date with the latest guidance. The PASMA accredited Towers for Users course is designed for those who are responsible for specifying, assembling, dismantling, using, altering, moving and inspecting access towers. Taking place over one day, it provides both theoretical and practical training on tower legislation; PASMA codes of practice; hazards associated with using mobile access towers; and what should be avoided.
Additionally, all staff also completed the Ladder Association Ladder Training, which covers all key bases, including how to correctly erect, use, handle and store ladders, as well as highlighting potential hazards.
Jamie Brassington, Product Manager at WernerCo, comments: “By being fully aware of the risks when working at height, our employees are in a prime position to advise on the correct use of our products and highlight the importance of training to our customers.”
WernerCo is urging all access tower users to undertake the relevant training in an effort to reduce the number of accidents that happen each year that are caused by improper use of working at height equipment.
