Like many other organisations in the work at height sector, PASMA, the international not-for-profit authority for the mobile access tower industry, welcomed the reduction in the number of fall from height related fatalities for 2016/17 as recently reported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
However, at 25 for the year compared with 37 for 2015/16 – an average of over two fatalities per month – there remains an enormous amount of work to be done says the association. There can be no complacency. The focus must be on building a positive, proactive safety culture.
