The PASMA Low Level Access Course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for assembling, dismantling, moving, inspecting and using Low Level Access equipment such as Podiums, Folding Room Scaffolds and Low Level Access Work Platforms. There are no prerequisite required for this course although a working knowledge of low level access equipment is an advantage.
Since the safe use of low level access units requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any podium user.
Please note that delegates will be expected to work at height whilst using low level access equipment, so please ensure delegates are in good health and do not have a fear of heights that may preclude them from taking part in the practical assessment.
Successful delegates will gain an understanding of current relevant legislation and be able to dismantle, erect, inspect and most importantly use a range of low level access equipment safely, in line with current approved methods and manufacturer’s instructions.
At the end of the theory session, delegates will take a short multiple choice test. If delegates successfully pass the test, they will then move onto the practical assessment, where they will have to use a low level access unit.
Successful delegates will receive a certificate and Photo ID card which will be valid for a period of 5 years from the date of the course.
