Each Driver has received training from The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) who promotes the safe and effective use of powered access worldwide. It serves as a forum for all active in the world of powered access. IPAF has played a key role in promoting many of the design, safety and testing procedures that are now established in the powered access industry.
Health and safety legislation including the work at height regulations 2005 require that any operative using an MEWP must be competent and trained to do so. IPAF is the nationally recognised governing body dedicated to the training of MEWP operatives.
Our drivers have a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), the most widely held and recognised proof of training for platform operators. The PAL Card is valid for five years and shows the machine categories that the operator has been trained in. It also features the holder’s photo and signature, and can be verified by calling IPAF. The PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) is recognised worldwide across industries as proof of platform operator training to the highest standard.
MEWP must be hired separately.
