After a 3-year absence, PASMA is keen to showcase the best from the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association on safety and new standards/procedures at this year’s conference in Nottingham’s Belfry hotel on September 28/29th.
The full-day programme includes the official launch of TowerSure, a fast-paced overview of all the recent updates to tower standards and an insightful look at the hours leading up to a fall from a mobile access tower at Paddington Station.
Speakers from the Rail Industry will discuss a worker who fell at Paddington Station in December 2019 and two close calls a few months later, one at almost the same spot as 2019 in Paddington Station, the other at Bristol Temple Meads. The speakers include Lesley Nidd, Safety Improvement Specialist at Network Rail, one of the leading investigators into these incidents, and Rob Usher, HSQE Director, Taziker, which provides a wide range of rail maintenance services and involved with the incidents at both Paddington and Temple Meads.
There are speeches from Peter Bennett, MBE, and Managing Director of PASMA, together with Don Aers, PASMA’s Technical Director to discuss the new EN1004:2020 standards. Also, Jason Carlton who helped the PASMA marketing team create a video at Bristol Temple Meads station on the correct assembly of scaffold towers.
Representatives from the No Falls Foundation will also host a workshop as part of the main conference.
