The AFI group of companies has announced its latest webinar will be on Tuesday 13th November at 10.30 am during PASMA Tower Safety Week

Tower Safety Week was established by PASMA to contribute to the reduction of falls from height. Mobile access towers provide a safe platform for accessing work at height. AFI will be hosting a webinar entitled: The safe use of mobile access towers and low-level podiums, delivered by Brian Parker, Business Development Manager, Technical Support, from AFI.

Brian will be outlining the versatility of mobile access tower products and how they can provide safe access for a wide range of tasks. During the webinar, he will be discussing the forthcoming changes to tower product standard EN1004 and make clear why you should always inspect a mobile access tower and what to record.

The webinar session will also provide insight into the changes for low-level access following the introduction of BS8620 and a review of the top five mistakes people make when using mobile access towers and how to avoid them.
