The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of Aerial Work Platforms (Manlifts) worldwide. Set up in 1983, IPAF is a not-for-profit members’ organization that represents the interests of manufacturers, distributors, users, rental and training companies. It serves as a forum for all active in the world of AWPs (Manlifts). IPAF has played a key role in promoting many of the design, safety and testing procedures that are now established in the powered access industry.
Training in the use of Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs) is required by most health and safety legislation and work at height regulations. If you need to work at height and use AWPs you should receive basic training and familiarization.
In addition to your main job, e.g. electrician, erector, mechanic, painter, decorator, cleaner, you will acquire a new skill.
All operator familiarization sessions are conducted fully in accordance with the international safety norms and directives.
AWPs are designed to be easy to use and offer a safe way to work at height, but with basic familiarization you will use the equipment more effectively and safely.
JOHNSON ARABIA provides with proper and adequate familiarization to the highest standards in the use of AWPs to allow operators working more competently, efficiently and productively.
We provide guidance for compliance with regulatory requirements in order that individuals can be regarded as competent persons to operate AWP.
All our supervisors are IPAF trained and certified. Our supervisors familiarize you onsite how to operate AWPs in line with the international working height regulations so that you receive the most up-to-date familiarization.
Booking procedures are in place to ensure the right questions are asked to ascertain what AWP is best for the job, and if the customer is uncertain, to offer to conduct a site-survey.
Our supervisors speak English, Tagalog, Hindi and Urdu so we can give a better service to our customers, but most important a clear understanding of the familiarization they are receiving.
