PASMA Low Level Access

  • Hop-up work platforms
  • Industrial podium steps
  • Multi-purpose ladders
  • Step ladders

This PASMA Low-Level Access certification delivers a thorough understanding of the relevant operational and safety requirements of working with access equipment. It is specifically aimed at Plant Operators who work with manufactured low-level units below 2.5 metres in height.
