At Elsbury we take health and safety very seriously and point out to all our customers that when working with Mobile Work Platforms there are three Health and Safety regulations that user should be most aware of:
Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 (PPE)
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)
Elsbury IPAF qualified instructors will ensure that your staff understand all the relevant regulations, but that they will also benefit from practical hands-on experience by training on our extensive fleet of machines.
The training covers all key areas that effect platform users and the law, including Fall Arrest Systems, H&S Compliance Check List and LOLER Certificate of Thorough Examination, which is required by the Health and Safety Executive as proof of satisfactory training.
The IPAF card is valid for five years and is the most widely held and recognised proof of training for platform operators. It carries all the key facts companies need to know; the date on which the holder was assessed; the expiry date by which re-training would be needed; the types of equipment that the holder has been trained to operate; the level to which the holder has been trained, e.g. operator, demonstrator and instructor, together with a holographic logo and the holder's photograph and signature to prevent mis-use.
We offer all IPAF categories over one day (subject to model), which includes provision of appropriate MEWP's, course material, certification, registration, powered access license (PAL) card, operator's safety guide and log book.
