Operator training is not only good practice; it is also a legal requirement. PSR can offer you free, impartial advice on the right training courses and qualifications. We can provide IPAF operator and manager/supervisor training for all types of access platforms and other lifting equipment, plus a range of associated health and safety courses.

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

Training – A Legal Obligation

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

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

This means all employees required to use an access platform to work at height must receive the appropriate training beforehand.

This is certified to international standard ISO 18878, meaning it is widely accepted as evidence that operators are competent and adequately trained. All courses are a mix of theory and practical training, and include:
