Tower Week receives WernerCo support
By Euan Youdale08 March 2022
WernerCo, manufacturer of BoSS towers, is announcing its support of this year’s PASMA Tower Week with a series of safety awareness videos.
The global event, launched by PASMA, will bring the industry together between 6-12 March to promote positive messages about mobile access towers, prefabricated tower scaffolds and low level work platforms, showcasing the different applications in which these can be used and helping professionals to work safely by demonstrating best practice.
WernerCo is supporting this year’s event by contributing to PASMA’s seven-part bitesize safety video series with content focusing on podium steps; demonstrating best practice with how to choose a podium, and how to use it safely. The video series, which will also include content on tower stabilisation, fall protection, EN1004 safety standards and more, will be available to view on PASMA’s social media and YouTube channels during Tower Week.
Approved PASMA training centre, and recent gold sponsor of falls prevention charity, The No Falls Foundation, WernerCo is dedicated to improving the safety, said Gurjeeve Bola, product manager at WernerCo.
“Falls from height remain one of the biggest causes of workplace injury; and when risks are overlooked due the misconception that using equipment that isn’t far off the ground doesn’t come with dangers, accidents are all the more prone to occurrence. Educating users towards podium standards plays a crucial role in working safely, and we’re looking forward to bringing this vital element of tower safety awareness to this year’s PASMA Tower Week.
Bola continued, “We are proud to work closely with PASMA, and to support their education initiatives in work at height safety. It is through relationships like these, between manufacturers and safety-orientated foundations, that as an industry we can hopefully work towards our shared goal of improving safety awareness and ultimately reduce the number of work at height accidents we see each year.”
WernerCo is an approved PASMA training centre and offers industry standard training programmes on the safe use of mobile access towers and low level access equipment.
