PASMA - Low Level Access Course

Course Details

Duration: Half day
Practical: Yes
Standards: BS 8620
Low level work platforms, often called podiums, pulpits, room scaffolds or podium steps, provide a stable platform for someone carrying out tasks at heights of under 2.5 metres. They’re generally lightweight, easy to manoeuvre, fold away for easy storage or transportation, and have collective fall prevention built in.
All too often, people see a simple piece of equipment that only goes a short distance off the ground and think nothing bad could happen. Sadly, that’s not the case – falling from a podium can and does cause serious injury. Just like any work at height equipment, workers need to be trained to use them safely.

 

PASMA Low-Level Access will equip you with the specialist knowledge you need to work safely with any low level work platforms under 2.5 metres. Spend half a day at an approved PASMA training centre with an expert instructor and go back to work knowing:

  • How to safely assemble and dismantle low level access equipment
  • How to safely use low level access equipment
  • How to inspect low level access equipment
  • How to identify hazards relating to their use
  • What legislation, regulations and guidance are applicable to these towers

Using a combination of theory and practical work, this course will leave you feeling confident that you’re working safely at low level heights.

Through a combination of theory and practical work, you will learn about:

  • Work at height responsibilities of employers, employees and suppliers
  • Standards affecting the manufacture and use of low level access equipment
  • Where to find crucial safety information
  • When it’s safe to use low level access equipment, and when it’s not
  • Carrying out pre-use checks and post-assembly inspections on low level access equipment
  • The components used in low level access equipment
  • Assembling and dismantling low level access equipment, including the 3T method
  • Good practices for the safe use of low level access equipment
  • Accessing a platform safely
  • Moving low level access equipment
  • Identifying hazards in the work environment
  • Avoiding personal health hazards

 

 

Your training instructor will give you an electronic or printed copy of the course notes and a PASMA Code of Practice that you can refer back to.

On successfully completing the theory and practical segments of the course, you’ll receive a PASMA PhotoCard and Certificate.
