Occupational safety thanks to IPAF training

Prevent accidents thanks to operator training for lifting work platforms

Your occupational safety is important to us.
In order to reduce the risk of accidents when using lifting work platforms, Felbermayr offers International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) training sessions for safe and effective operation of lifting work platforms. The training is provided by experienced experts in the field of height access technology in accordance with the internationally applicable standard ISO 18878.

Maximum safety thanks to training for lifting work platform operators
According to the Austrian Health and Safety at Work Act (ArbeitnehmerInnenschutzgesetz, ASchG), work platform renters are obliged to train the operators on the devices used and ensure safety and health protection. Once they have completed the training, the participants will receive a PAL card (Powered Access Licence) as an international training certificate for safe and effective use of devices. The PAL card is valid for five tears and is accepted as a training certificate in 51 countries.

The training programme was developed by experienced experts in the industry and is given by trained trainers. Felbermayr Transport- und Hebetechnik is a certified training centre and offers training for mobile lifting work platform operators (drivers). The training sessions are offered throughout Austria and Germany and take place in the relevant Felbermayr rental branches or on your site. The theory section can be completed as an e-learning. Benefit from the highest degree of flexibility here.

Your expanded knowledge will provide you with many benefits in your daily work. Use your expanded knowledge when selecting, operating and maintaining devices to save time and money.
