What is IPAF training

Security for AIRO and IPAF

AIRO has always been extremely rigorous in adopting the strictest European and international safety standards and has always invested significant resources in ensuring the safety and security of end users. The cost that customers sustain to purchase AIRO safety is the best investment they can make to safeguard the safety of their employees. A serious accident at work caused by the use of inadequate or poor safety equipment or by an untrained operator is much more costly for everyone (the operator, the company and society); much better to prevent by investing in a truly safe and adequate platform and an IPAF approved training course. IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) promotes the effective and safe use of mobile aerial access equipment worldwide. Established in 1983, IPAF is a non-profit, associate member organisation representing the interests of manufacturers, distributors, users, rental companies and training companies.

AIRO - IPAF training

Training on the use of work equipment is a legal obligation in all European and almost all national occupational health and safety regulations. In Italy this obligation is contained in the Legislative Decree N.81 of 9 April 2008 Articles 71 and 73. The IPAF training programme for users of mobile and elevating work platforms has been developed by leading professionals in the sector. It has been certified by TÜV as complying with the international standard ISO 18878:2004 Mobile elevating work platforms - Operator (driver) training. More than 50,000 operators are trained each year through a worldwide network of more than 250 training centres. Those who successfully complete an IPAF Course receive a PAL Card (Powered Access License), a safety guide manual, a logbook and a certificate.
