  • Employer record keeping: ePAL allows the card holder to share their cards/certificates with their employer or anyone else that needs to see or retain a copy.

  • Complete peace of mind: ePAL is convenient both for operators and their employers – licences, qualifications and practical experience are easily shared from the operator’s phone, giving peace‐of‐mind for everyone, especially when it comes to security and safety.
