PASMA training courses can benefit both employers and employees in a number of ways. Attaining PASMA certification gives invaluable, practical knowledge that allows users to be safer when working from height. Access Tower Services Ltd breaks down some of the key benefits in the following article.

Boost Your CV

Having a PASMA certificate can give you a competitive edge over other employees. Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been in the field for a few years, evidence of PASMA approved training is an attractive trait. Many employers will have to pay to send their new employees on these courses, so the fact you already have one saves them a cost. More importantly, it shows that you’re serious about your profession and that’s something money can’t buy.

Further Safety

We all know the potential risks for working at height. As well as ensuring you (and, if applicable, your workers) are equipped with the correct equipment is vital, but so is knowledge. During your PASMA certified course, you’ll receive comprehensive safety training that is essential for lowering the risks of working at height. The training will both increase your own safety as well as the safety of your colleagues because you may notice practices that could be made safer.

Peace of Mind 

When you receive training from a PASMA certified course, you know that the experience you are getting is of high quality.
