Nov. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- With this years’ statistics related to workplace injury announced by the HSE, it is clear that working at height safety training is as important as ever. Falls from height accounted for the second largest proportion of non-fatal injuries to employees in 2011/2012, standing at 14% and although the number of fatalities continues to fall, there were still 173 workers who lost their life following an incident while working at height.  These figures confirm the necessity for thorough and comprehensive safety awareness – including training.

“These figures from the HSE are, in a way, welcoming” says Colin Wright, Managing Director at Britannia Safety and Training, “It shows that we are taking steps in the right direction to reduce the number of fatalities caused at work. We’ve still got a long way to go, however, and we promote PASMA training courses in Norfolk to a variety of industries to help to see the continuous improvement of these statistics.”

Accredited to the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturer’s Association, the recognised authority for mobile access towers, PASMA training courses increase both delegates knowledge about the health and safety guidelines surrounding Working at Height and also their practical capabilities.

“Delegates leave with knowledge of the PASMA Code of Practice, legislation affecting working at height with mobile access towers and a variety of best practice methods including assembling, altering and dismantling towers as well as learning how to avoid potential hazards when using mobile access towers” continues Mr Wright. “It ensures that companies are meeting their legal responsibilities to consider the safety and wellbeing of their staff and means that there is a reduced risk of injuries on their site.”

Located near Norwich in Norfolk, the PASMA training course is one of the many run by Britannia Safety and Training who pride themselves on their superb customer service and also their professionalism – all of their trainers have industry experience, giving them first-hand knowledge about how the legislation can work well in situ, on a day to day basis.
