PASMA TOWERS WITH CANTILEVERS
PASMA Towers with Cantilevers
Towers with Cantilevers is an advanced module that equips experienced tower users with the skillset for more complex tower builds, taking into account the principles of counterbalance calculations for the use of kentledge in cantilever applications and much more.
It also covers in some depth the appropriate sections of BS 1139-6:2014 – part 6, which details the requirements for more complex tower structures, such as towers with cantilevers, which utilise components from towers complying with BS EN 1004:2004, but which are outside the limited scope of this standard.
Legislation, Regulations and Guidance affecting working at height with access towers; PASMA Code of Practice; Product Standards EN 1004:2004 and BS1139 Part 6:2014; assembling, altering and dismantling towers incorporating current best practice for fall protection; inspection of completed mobile access towers with cantilevers and completion of Tower Inspection Records; hazards affecting the use of towers with a cantilever.
Key Learning Objectives:
How to safely assemble, use, dismantle and relocate a standard configuration of a mobile access tower with a cantilever, taking into account the principles of counterbalance calculations for the use of kentledge in cantilever applications.
Instruction both in theory and practical sessions.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Suitable head/footwear/eye/glove protection during the practical session. Hard hat, preferable with chin strap.
A PASMA Certificate and PhotoCard will be issued to successful delegates who complete the theory and practical assessment sessions at the level they attend the course, which has a five year validity period.
