PASMA Tower Week Yorkshire in 2 weeks

For anyone involved in working at height, the unmissable event of 2012- PASMA Tower Week Yorkshire will put mobile access towers firmly in the spotlight. With best practice top of the agenda, this landmark event will make a significant contribution to safety and standards throughout the region.

Free seminars, free on-site inspections, drop-in surgeries and ‘ask the expert’ sessions are just some of the activities planned by PASMA members. Tower demonstrations and training will also feature prominently, plus competitions, in a unique programme designed to help anyone involved in specifying, purchasing, using and supervising the use of towers.

Joining PASMA at the launch of Tower Week at The Royal Armouries in Leeds on Monday 11 June will be the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), Working Well Together (WWT), the Electrical Contractor’s Association (ECA) and The Manufacturers' Organisation (EEF) representing the specialist trades. PASMA’s brand new mobile application will also make its debut at this impressive venue, which, in addition, will play host to a display of standard Through the Trap (3T) and Advance Guardrail (AGR) towers, alongside some advanced tower applications.

Comments Tim Shambrook, Working Well Together campaign manager: “The aim of the WWT campaign is to improve health and safety in the construction industry, particularly in small and micro businesses. This fits perfectly with PASMA Tower Week, which is why we are delighted to be supporting this latest PASMA initiative.” “This very practical week,” says PASMA’s managing director, Peter Bennett, “with its focus on delivering knowledge and information, and showcasing the use of towers in a variety of industry sectors, will also allow us to observe how towers are being assembled and used on a day-to-day basis.” “We plan to recognise and reward good practice when we see it and point up poor practice when we don’t. Above all, we aim to create a safer and better informed Yorkshire when it comes to the use and application of mobile access towers for working at height.”
