WHAT TO BRING ALONG ON THE DAY...
WHY IS TRAINING SO IMPORTANT?
During 2007 45 workers died as a result of a fall from height and 3750 were seriously injured (HSE 2007).
Reducing this unnecessary injury toll is a priority; as a user of Powered Access you will no doubt be aware of the legislation (LOLER, PUWER, HASWA and WAHR). For companies using any type of powered access equipment, it is essential that all Operators are fully trained in all aspects of safety. As it is the employers responsibility for maintaining safety standards that satisfy the criteria laid out in both EC and Heath and Safety at Work legislation.
The health and safety at work act 1974 places a duty on the employer to provide an adequate level of training to allow employees to operate equipment safely and competently. All courses conducted by Access All Areas Platforms enable your company to comply with this requirement.
Courses are approved by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). This scheme is nationally recognised and provides the operator with a permit valid for five years. This scheme has the added benefit of being the first step on the route to an NVQ for those who require it.
