New heights reached with PASMA training

April 20, 2018 | posted in: BJB NEWS | by

Materials handling equipment specialists, BJB Lift Trucks, has become a member of PASMA, the trade association representing the mobile access tower industry in the UK. The Grimsby-based company has met the strict criteria for membership of the Association, founded in 1974, which champions safety and best practice when working at height.

Comments Peter Harvey, director: “We are delighted to have been accepted as a member in the category of registered training centre and appreciate the hard work put in by our training department to achieve this additional accreditation. It demonstrates to our employees and customers alike that we are a serious, professional company determined to identify with the high standards, aims and aspirations of the lead trade body in its field.”

As a result, BJB Lift Trucks is now authorised to deliver PASMA training, nationally recognised and respected as the gold standard when it comes to erecting, using, moving and dismantling towers in accordance with the Work at Height Regulations.

Successful candidates, who must pass a written and practical test, receive a PASMA certificate of competence and a photo card.

A founder member of the Access Industry Forum (AIF), PASMA’s membership and influence has grown through the expert and dedicated involvement of its member companies. Training, operational safety and technical developments are just some of the key areas in which the work of the association is ongoing.

We offer a range of PASMA courses including Towers for Users and Work at Height, which dovetail nicely with our wide range of IPAF, ITSSAR and RTITB accredited training courses.
