IPAF Powered Access Platforms

IPAF – International Powered Access Federation.

Purple Training Solutions can offer this course at our indoor training centre at Ilchester or across the South West at your location*. The PUWER regulations require employers to provide adequate training on all plant and machinery so they may be operated in a safe manner and the working at height regulations also apply to these machines.

The general level of training is on 3a and 3b, mobile scissor and mobile boom and 1b static boom.

Who should attend

This course is aimed at anyone who is responsible for the use of or will be using a MEWP in the workplace. There are no prerequisites for this course although some experience of MEWPS would be an advantage if two categories of training are undertaken in one day. Each delegate will be required to comply with the IPAF health and fitness statement and not suffer from vertigo.

Course Aim

To give attendees knowledge of relevant Regulations, Codes of Practice and good safe working practices along with hands-on practical skills to enable them to safely use mobile powered access equipment.
