It will take place on Wednesday, 14 March at the Marriott Hotel Al Forsan in Abu Dhabi, and is set to be a landmark event in the development of tower safety and good practice across the region, said the association. 

The one-day event, open to PASMA members and non-members, will address a wide range of topics. Delegates will hear from recognised experts, recieve clarity on the latest standards and guidance and gain insights into the opportunities and challenges facing the industry.

Aimed at access equipment suppliers, companies who work at height, health and safety professionals, government departments and legislators, key topics include:

  • The true cost of getting it wrong
  • Importance of standardisation
  • Changing attitudes for the better

PASMA’s chair of the Middle East Safety at Height Advisory Panel, Mike Palmer, said, “This exciting event will help shape the future of the work at height industry in general, and the mobile access tower industry in particular.

“It is a must-attend conference for anyone involved, either directly or indirectly, in working at height and height safety, especially those companies and individuals wanting to expand their activities and keep people safe at the same time.”

The conference is preceded by a special award ceremony and networking dinner on the night of Tuesday, 13 March.
