If you are looking for an access rental company that provides excellent service and goes above and beyond the call of duty, check out the list of IPAF Rental+ audited companies. IPAF Rental+ is an independent
quality mark that is awarded to member rental companies that have been audited to meet defined standards in customer service, safety, staff training, contract terms and machine inspection. There is also a full membership
directory on the website, where you can search for reliable business partners who abide by the IPAF Code of Conduct. Members range from equipment manufacturers and dealers and distributors to contractors and service companies. If you want to network with colleagues
from across the industry, check out our events page for listings of events that IPAF organises or attends. The members-only area is accessible
exclusively to IPAF members logging on with their membership number. They can access a range of services. For example, they can download logos, keep up-to- date through reading minutes of committee meetings, view the latest IPAF presentations and comment on documents for open consultation. By the way, if you want to tell us what
you think of our website, there is an online survey you can fill in. We would like to hear from you!
Whether you are new to the world of powered access or are an experienced manager or operator, the IPAF website www.ipaf.org has something for you. A wealth of technical guidance material
and resources is available on the website, including technical guidance notes and practical advice on using powered access equipment safely and effectively. Topics range from using harnesses
to familiarisation and assessing ground conditions. You can also find straightforward guidance on how to prevent rare but dangerous trapping or crushing accidents that could happen when aerial work platforms
are used in confined overhead spaces. Elsewhere on the website is a range of
reference guides providing information on subjects such as loading and unloading, risk assessment, and machine weights, loads and permissible loads. Visit the Film section to learn about the
correct use of equipment and view the award-winning Spot the Mistake video. The 20-minute programme features six separate scenarios and each scene contains one deliberate mistake, which the audience has the chance to identify before the correct procedure is shown. Also, you can watch the dramatic video
Only Dummies Don’t Wear Harnesses on Booms, which presents a vivid illustration of the dangers of not wearing a full-body harness on a boom-type platform and the catapult effect when the boom goes over a low-lying obstacle.
Support IPAF’s safety campaigns, such as Clunk Click for harnesses on booms and the more recent Spread the Load!, calling for proper assessment of ground conditions and correct use of outriggers and spreader plates. An emergency descent decal can be used
to signpost emergency descent controls on machines. Stickers are available as artwork downloads or to order. As for training, IPAF’s programme for
platform operators is certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO 18878. The locator will show your nearest training centre. The PAL (Powered Access Licence) Card
is proof of successful training, and site and safety managers can check its validity with an online verification tool.
