    What will I learn from IPAF PAV Training?


    What will I learn from IPAF PAV Training?

    Health and safety is an important part of any workplace, but the role it has to play varies depending on the nature of the industry involved. In some cases highly specific training courses are required to be undertaken by certain workers, depending on the job they perform. A good example of this is the IPAF PAV training.

    IPAF is short for International Powered Access Federation, and it relates to all types of access platforms that are powered and can be used at height. PAV stands for push around vertical and it relates to a specific platform that is often used to perform tasks at heights. It is imperative that anyone using such a platform is able to do so in a safe and responsible manner.

    This includes such tasks as knowing its limitations, checking its safe operation prior to use, and knowing how to start and stop the PAV safely so it does not accidentally move while being used. The IPAF PAV training course provides each PAV operator with everything they need to know to adhere to proper health and safety measures every time they use the platform.

    Practising proper safety at work

    When using one of these platforms it isn’t just you that you need to think about. You also need to assess the area around the platform to determine whether anyone else could be at risk. These training courses provide essential skills and knowledge for all those who use these platforms in the workplace.

    However there is always the potential that a hazard of some kind could arise that has the potential to cause an accident. Reducing the odds of this occurring is part and parcel of providing these courses for those who require them.
