IPAF Training in London

Due to its more than 40 years in business, GTAccess has amassed a plethora of knowledge and skill in training operatives how to use powered access equipment safely. The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) advocates for the safe use of all mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), including scissor and boom lifts. Everyone who operates a MEWP is required to successfully complete an IPAF training course and obtain the right certification in order to guarantee that they have the skills and knowledge needed to limit the risks of injury and accident on site.

GTAccess is able to provide the necessary IPAF training for your London site and ensure that your workforce is fully prepared for working at height thanks to our training depots around London offering IPAF training: Brentwood, Luton and Hailsham. Awarded to those who successfully complete an IPAF training course, the IPAF PAL card ensures compliance with the Work at Height Regulations, 2005 as well as the PUWER Regulations 1998 and it is acknowledged by all major contracting companies. As a condition of employment and as a safety measure, many contractors demand an IPAF training course and a valid PAL card from employees who operate MEWPs on construction sites. You can enrol in IPAF training for your London crew with GTAccess at a time that works for you and your team, with some weekend and evening training options available at times. Using the online learning option for some, or parts of some, of the courses you can drastically reduce the amount of time spent at one of the local training centres.
