2018 Conference and AMM

2018 Conference and AMM

PASMA has announced the return of its annual Conference and Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM). The Conference, which is held on 13 July 2018 at the Aviator Hotel, Farnborough, will share knowledge on the latest industry developments and the role of towers in occupational safety.

The day before the Conference will host several formal meetings for PASMA Council and Committee members and will end with a special Chairman’s BBQ, which any ticket holder can attend.

The second day of the Conference is set to attract a range of delegates, from PASMA members to safety professionals and people responsible for safety at height on site, with a packed programme of engaging sessions:

The Morning from Hell: A fall from a tower
Kirsty Gomersal, DAC Beachcroft  & HM Assistant Coroner for West Yorkshire, and Ray Cooke, Head of Construction Sector Safety Unit from Health & Safety Executive (HSE), will involve delegates in an interactive scenario where a person has fell from a tower. As an experienced advocate who regularly represents organisations and individuals in prosecutions by organisations like the HSE and local authorities, Kirsty can share valuable insight from her experiences. Ray's extensive experience will also give insight into the HSE's role in the aftermath of an accident.

Changes to EN 1004:  We need to talk about its impact

The standard for mobile access towers will change following a recent revision, which will affect manufacturers, suppliers, users, specifiers and those responsible for work at height on site.
Discover how these changes will impact users, specifiers, managers, and safety professionals, with a panel of industry experts.

From the Ground Up: The untold story of PASMA

PASMA Auditor, Paul Pritchard, will take delegates back in time by exploring the evolution of PASMA and the tower industry, and what our past will tell about our future.

No Falls Foundation Charity Dinner

The Conference will end with a special charity dinner on the Friday evening for the No Falls Foundation - a new charity dedicated to preventing falls and falling objects from height, and helping people affected by the life-changing consequences of a fall.

The No Falls Foundation has as its key objectives:

  • Raise awareness around the risks of life-changing consequences

  • Fund research into incident prevention

  • Support those that have been affected by falls from height or falling objects

Tickets are currently available for both the Conference and Charity Dinner here.
