Training

Operator training is not only good practice, it’s a legal requirement. We offer a range of nationally recognised training courses designed to equip you and your team with the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely at height, reducing the risk of accidents and ensuring you conform to your legal obligations.

We can provide IPAF operator and manager/supervisor training for all types of access platforms and other lifting equipment. We also offer range of associated health and safety courses including scaffold and mobile access tower training and work at height essentials.

You can attend courses at a dedicated training centre, or for your convenience we can arrange training days at your own facilities.

Your Legal Obligations

 You have two legal obligations to ensure that all operators of powered access platforms are properly trained:

  • Work at Height Regulations 2005 – this mandates that all those involved in work at height are “competent”
  • Council Directive 2009/104/EC OJ L260/5 - Article 9 states that workers given the task of using work equipment MUST receive adequate training, including training on any risks which such use may entail

In plain English, the law states that all employees required to use an access platform for work at height must receive the appropriate training before they operate the equipment.
