Tower Week set to be biggest ever
By Euan Youdale22 October 2015
Tower Week will take place during the first week of November in the UK.
Now in its fourth year, Tower Week - 2 November to 6 November - was established to promote the safe use of towers, exchange information and development safety at height.
PASMA members will deliver a series of events and activities throughout the UK focusing on the versatility of towers across multiple industry sectors and their safe and productive use.
PASMA managing director, Peter Bennett said, "Tower Week is a collaborative effort between PASMA and our partners. Together we are aiming to produce a special week that will benefit the industry and make a real difference to keeping people safe."
"With an increase in partnership and some new initiatives,Tower Week 2015 promises to be the biggest and best yet."
Tower Week will begin with a free webinar at 14:00 on 2 November, which will feature a panel of mobile access tower experts discussing tower safety and best practice.
Tower Week will also help its members raise funds for charity through the High Tower Challenge, which will see PASMA members gain sponsorship by building towers to the height of famous buildings, such as the Shard in London, throughout the week.
This year's campaign will also include competitions open to the public, including the first ever Tower Selfie Challenge, which invites people to safely take a photo with a tower and send it in via social media using #towerweek.
Everyone's knowledge of safe tower use will also be put to the test with the return of the popular online Tower Test quiz. Anyone who gets full marks will be rewarded with a Tower Safety pack which contains comprehensive information on best practice and safe use.
Further information and live updates on the week’s activities can be found on the official PASMA website towerweek.pasma.org.uk
run from 2 November to 6 November, 2015, starting with a free webinar at 14.00 on Monday the 2nd.
