Do you use mobile access towers? Changes to EN1004 Training Courses Norwich & Norfolk




If you or your workers use mobile access towers, you have a responsibility to provide equipment that’s safe and reliable. A simple way to do that is to ensure that it’s certified to design standard EN 1004-1.

EN 1004-1 tells us what materials, dimensions, design loads, safety and performance requirements mobile access towers should conform to. The standard has been around since 2004, but a new version was published in November 2020. It’s titled EN 1004-1:2020.

The old EN 1004:2004 standard will be withdrawn a year later, in November 2021. The months leading up to the withdrawal date are effectively a transition period, during which designers, manufacturers and suppliers will switch to providing mobile access towers that comply with, and are certified to, the new EN 1004-1:2020.
