Tower know-how in your pocket

The PocketCard was designed in collaboration with the HSE. It promotes competence and offers simple, straightforward advice to users ‘from the ground upwards’. Nine easy-to-follow steps take the user through everything from environmental factors and ground conditions to the safe and proper use of adjustable legs, stabilisers, and frame-locking devices.

The reverse of the card explains when towers must be inspected under the Work at Height Regulations, how to complete a tower inspection record, what to do if an inspection is unsatisfactory, plus the record-keeping requirements of the Regulations. The guidance is also available in A2 poster format.

Said PASMA MD, Peter Bennett: “The PocketCards and posters join the PASMA Code of Practice, DVDs, and tower inspection record as invaluable aids to the safe and productive use of mobile access towers on site.”

The new cards and posters are available from the Association’s online shop – click here
