PASMA – A Brief Introduction post image

Founded in 1974, the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA), is the recognised focus and authority for mobile access towers. PASMA advances safety, standards and best practice across a wide range of sectors and represents the interests of its members in the UK, South Africa, South East Asia and the Middle East.

Providing and governing the industry standard training scheme for mobile access towers and delivering proficiency and competence as required by the Work at Height Regulations.

For many, the PASMA certificate and ID card are the only acceptable proof of competence.

Most, if not all, the training and technical advances in towers and tower use have involved PASMA and its various specialist committees. These are made up of experts who know and understand towers and speak the language.
