IPAF Training Courses
Now Available

At Premier Platforms we offer safety at height courses tailored for all your needs through the recognised training bodies. Our experienced instructors will help you understand your obligations and allow you to undertake your tasks and projects with the very latest health and safety practice in Scissor and Boom Training.

Work at height regulations require you as an employer to assume full responsibility for your employee’s health and safety. Therefore you need to provide adequate training to ensure you are not potentially liable for prosecution.

The IPAF training programme for platform operators was developed by leading industry professionals. More than 150,000 operators are trained each year through a worldwide network of training centres. Successful trainees receive a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), a safety guide, a logbook and a certificate.
