IPAF and in-house Operator Training

Whether you need IPAF training for MEWPs or even a course designed specifically for your needs we can help. Our IPAF certified trainers cover the whole of the UK and Ireland and will train operators at your site, using your equipment. That way they get used to working with their own equipment and in their own enviornment.

“The benefits of having a well-trained workforce using the most appropriate access equipment are huge: improved safety, and increased productivity being just two. Good training can also reduce damage to equipment, and reduce the need for costly repairs. And we do training at any time - night-shifts or weekends? No problem!"

"Employers must ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for the purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using work equipment, and risks which such use may entail and the precautions to be taken. (PUWER regulation 9). There is a similar duty to ensure adequate training in relation to supervisory and managerial staff."
