Literacy, Health & Fitness
Extract from the PASMA Code of Practice.
"The safe use of mobile access towers requires that delegates consult safety notices, read and thoroughly understand the manufactures 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 problem with literacy or language comprehension, or have any doubts about their fitness to use mobile access towers, they must bring this 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 in place adequate measures, to take account of any difficulties they may have".
