IPAF Push Around Verticle Course Description

This half day IPAF operator training course that instructs operators how to manoeuvre and position Push Around Vertical access machines (PAVs) safely and proficiently.

Push Around Verticals are essentially small, simple static vertical machines. However, unlike Static Verticals (IPAF category 1a), they have no mechanical drive and are physically pushed around by the operator. Popular within the retail and manufacturing sectors who are using this type of equipment for low-level access work.
