the course which has a five year validity period Literacy, Fitness & Health (Extract from the PASMA Code of Practice) Since the safe use of mobile towers
requires that you consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, literacy and language comprehension
are important requirements for any tower user Similarly, since the assembly and use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should
be physically fit and in good health and should, generally, not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of
heights / vertigo, giddiness / difficulty with balance, impaired limb function, alcohol or drug dependence or psychiatric illness If delegates have any problems
with literacy or language comprehension, or have any doubts about their fitness to use mobile access towers, they must bring them to the attention of their
employer. This need not preclude them from using mobile access towers, provided their employer conducts an assessment and is able to put into place
adequate measures, to take account of any difficulties they may have

Qualifications & Experience
No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but it would be beneficial if delegates had a basic understanding of work at height issues
