2018 Conference and AMM
PASMA Conference 2018 set to ‘raise tower safety knowledge’
PASMA has announced the return of its Conference and Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM). The Conference, which is held on 13 July 2018 at the Aviator Hotel, Farnborough, will share knowledge on the latest industry developments and the role of towers in occupational safety.
The Conference has a packed agenda intended for PASMA members, safety professionals, tower users, and those responsible for height safety in the workplace. It’s an opportunity to get the latest updates on mobile access tower standards and industry developments, as well as crucial insights into safe working at height.
The Conference includes the following events:
The Morning from Hell: A fall from a tower
Kirsty Gomersal, Partner at law business, DAC Beachcroft and HM Assistant Coroner for West Yorkshire; and Ray Cooke, Head of Construction Sector Safety Unit from Health & Safety Executive (HSE) will involve delegates in an interactive scenario where a person has fallen from a tower. As an experienced advocate who regularly represents organisations and individuals in prosecutions by organisations like the HSE and local authorities, Kirsty can share valuable insight from her experiences. Ray's extensive experience will also explain the HSE's role in the aftermath of an accident.
Changes to EN 1004: We need to talk about its impact
The standard for mobile access towers is changing following a recent revision, which will affect manufacturers, suppliers, users, specifiers and those responsible for height safety.
Discover how these changes will impact users, specifiers, managers, and safety professionals.
From the Ground Up: The untold story of PASMA
PASMA Auditor, Paul Pritchard, will take delegates back in time by exploring the evolution of PASMA and the tower industry, and how lessons learned from the past can help shape the future.
PASMA Auditors share crucial information on course updates to PASMA Instructors.
No Falls Foundation Charity Dinner
The Conference will end with a special charity dinner on the Friday evening for the No Falls Foundation - a new charity dedicated to preventing falls and falling objects from height, and helping people affected by the life-changing consequences of a fall.
The No Falls Foundation has as its key objectives:
- Raise awareness around the risks of life-changing consequences
- Fund research into incident prevention
- Support those that have been affected by falls from height or falling objects
For the first time ever, PASMA is also inviting sponsorship of the Conference, which will allow organisations to increase brand awareness among the delegates.
Tickets are currently available for both the Conference and Charity Dinner here.
