Who Should Attend

Who needs a PAL Card?

If you need to work at height and use access equipment (MEWPs):

• IPAF believes that you should receive basic training
• In addition to your main job, e.g. electrician, painter, decorator, cleaner, you will acquire a new skill
• Platforms are designed to be easy to use and offer a safe way to work at height, but with basic training you will use the equipment more effectively and safely
If you are an employer
• You can be sure that legal requirements have been fulfilled if your platform operators have the PAL card
• Most legislation, covering Health & Safety obligations, accident prevention and work at height regulations, requires you to provide employees with proper and adequate training in the use of work equipment.
IPAF training to the highest standard means that your platform operators will also work more efficiently and productively.
