PASMA’s first Qatar Symposium, held recently at the Radisson Blu Doha, welcomed over 50 delegates for what was a hugely successful event. Supported by Ashgal, Qatar’s Public Works Authority, the fully-booked event provided the opportunity for delegates to hear from several knowledgeable and expert speakers on safety when working at height. Eng Ehab from Ashghal shared a very welcomed and informative presentation on the updates to Qatar Construction Specification 2018, covering the changes to Section 11 on health and safety in detail and raising positive audience interaction during the panel session. Saji Nair talked about the role and responsibilities of the Project Management Company in meeting the legal requirements of work at height. Santosh Kumar Pillar, on behalf of IIRSM, talked about the selection of safe equipment and recognised training when managing the risks associated with work at height. see
