  • IPAF is the certification required to work on mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs), mobile elevated work platforms include cherry pickers, scissor lifts, and boom lifts Many of these mobile elevated working platforms are used in industries such as telecommunications and power industries and therefore certification is essential However pasma training and IPAF training doesn't always include the essential PPE required, PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and as one would imagine working at height will require an element of this, generally companies are required by law to send delegates who are required to wear PPE to a training course in order to obtain the full certification before commencing work, and depending on the level of safety training separate courses may also be required for safety harnesses, this course in general will go hand in hand with working at height as safety harnesses are a big part of the equipment required for personal safety avoiding slips and falls from height It is agreed within the industry that all courses pertaining to safety should be, by law required to avoid accident injury or even death through lack of knowledge when working at height, especially as these potent6ial threats can be avoided by taking just a handful of one day courses Anna Stenning researches why it is essential for people working at height to participate in pasma training or IPAF training courses to achieve the correct level of competency.
