IPAF Training Leeds

Having been in the powered access platform business for almost 40 years, GTAccess is the number one name for the provision of new and used powered access platforms and  IPAF training in Leeds. We have a wealth of knowledge and expertise that allows us to instruct others on how to use powered access equipment efficiently and safely. The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) recommends boom lifts and scissor lifts, as well as other mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) be used safely, and only operated by personnel with the skills and knowledge to minimise the risk of accidents and injuries. Every individual using a MEWP must successfully complete an IPAF course in Leeds and be a certificate holder.  

Thanks to our dedicated IPAF training facility in Stoke on Trent, GTAccess can ensure your staff receives the essential IPAF training for your Leeds construction company and is fully prepared for safe operation at heights. The IPAF PAL card, which is recognised by all contracting firms, is given to learners who complete an IPAF training course. The course adheres to the Work at Height Regulations, 2005 and the PUWER Regulations, 1998 and is a recommended requirement of employment for operating MEWPs. Give us a call to discuss all your IPAF needs.  

Through GTAccess, your team can enrol in an IPAF training course convenient to you, including options for weekends and e-learning.
