Aerial work platform training for supervisors

Supervisors must be able to guarantee the safety of their employees. In order to take on this responsibility, it is necessary that risks can be identified and prevented. This requires knowledge of relevant legislation. Practical knowledge is also indispensable, such as the difference in types of aerial work platforms, their correct, safe and efficient use and the risks that employees can face.

Who needs aerial work platform training?

The training is indispensable for supervisors with employees who operate an aerial work platform. This certificate is also a requirement for employees who are responsible for planning work with aerial work platforms. No specific prior education is required for participation in the program.

Subjects covered

During the one half-day training we cover:

  • Health and safety legislation and legal provisions
  • Risks and warnings
  • Personal protection equipment
  • Drawing up a risk analysis
  • Compile a TRA (task risk analysis)
  • Dangerous incidents
  • Discussion of Last Minute Risk Assessment (LMRA)

Duration of the training and exams

The training lasts one half-day in which we go deeper into the theory. The exam contains risky situations that must be assessed. Instruction is also given on the operation of the aerial work platform that will be used on the work floor. After a successful completion of the course, the student receives an internationally recognized certificate. The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) aerial platform certificate (the PAL Card) for managers is personal and valid for five years. The IPAF is an organization that focuses on the safe and effective use of aerial work platforms.
