IPAF has created a brand new advanced training course, in response to demand from UK contractors for training that better prepares operators of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) for work in higher risk or challenging environments, and in order to advance their existing skills in operating MEWPs. On completion of this course, they will obtain the IPAF PAL+ Operator Licence.
This day-long course is more in-depth than the standard IPAF courses and as such is more challenging to pass. The course covers both theory and practice, aiming to increase the operator’s ability at a practical level and help them gain a more in-depth understanding of why accidents happen and how they can be prevented.
Theory is incorporated at the beginning of the day in a written test and includes; accident analysis, MEWP categories and selection, operator daily inspection, safe operating awareness and hazard awareness. On a more practical note the course covers site risk assessment, machine familiarisation, pre-use checks and inspections.
