Roger Verallo Euro Towers Managing Director is a member of the British Standards Institution BSI B514/24 panel that was responsible for the drafting of both PAS 250 and subsequently BS 8620.
Both PAS 250, and now BS 8620, ensures that podium products which conform to their requirements, meet the high levels of strength, stability and safety required.
Whilst standards are not enforceable in law, they should be regarded as best practice, and any Podiums currently in use will, providing they are in undamaged and usable and conform to the requirements of the Working at Height regulations (WAHR) 2005, canalways be used and will not become illegal at any date in the future.
Members of the drafting panel included representation from PASMA, the Health and Safety Executive, Hire Association Europe, safety professionals, independent design experts and construction industry user groups.

All Euro Towers Ltd podiums are certified to PAS 250 and conform to the requirements of BS8620.
