We at SP Training deliver high-quality Construction training that provides delegates with the essential skills they need on a construction site. We offer a variety of courses for managers and supervisors as well as workers in the construction sector. Our industry expert tutors have trained thousands of people and can provide PASMA, IPAF, IOSH and other Health & Safety training for every person’s needs, from the most experienced operator right through to the beginner who has never been on site before

Despite the continuing efforts of those responsible for health and safety in the construction industry, the number of fatalities remains at an unacceptably high level. As new workers come into the industry, they will need to be trained..

Remember IOSH Working Safely is now recognised by CSCS as the equivalent to Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in a Construction Environment, enabling delegates to apply for a CSCS green card once they have passed the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Operators Test.

PASMA

PASMA training is vital for operatives working on mobile scaffold towers as it minimises the risk of accident and injury. A PASMA trained operative is aware of the risks and understands how to work safely at heights. Candidates are trained in how to safely assemble towers, including how to check for damage and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.

A PASMA photo-card and certificate of competence issued on successful completion. This course is approved by the UK Contractors Group and accepted on sites throughout the UK. It must be renewed every 5 years to take account of developments in best practice and changes in legislation.

Who should attend PASMA training?
Anyone whose duties include the need to assemble, use, inspect, alter and dismantle mobile access towers should complete PASMA training.
