Literacy, Fitness and Health*:

Since the safe use of mobile access towers requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturers’ instruction manual, literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any tower user.

Similarly since the assembly and use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and in good health and should, generally not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of heights, vertigo, giddiness, difficulty with balance, impaired lung function, alcohol or drug dependence of psychiatric illness.

If delegates have any problems with literacy or language comprehension or have any doubts about their fitness to use mobile access towers they must bring them to the attention of their employer. This need not preclude them from using mobile access towers provided their employer conducts an assessment and is able to put into place adequate measures to take account of any difficulties they may have.
