Cherry Picker Training
Cherry Pickers are one of the most popular types of aerial work platform in use today; with articulated boom work platforms being found on building sites, being used by building and home maintenance teams, gardeners and more. You see them on wheels, on tracks and even truck and trailer mounted! To that end, making sure that you and your team are properly International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) certified to use these MEWPS safely is essential.
Hire Safe Solutions can provide your staff with exactly this. Our range of fully IPAF recognised training courses provide operators with the skills required to properly operate a wide range of construction equipment. The IPAF 3B course is for the use of Cherry Pickers, also known as mobile articulated booms, and covers a variety of topics, including relevant health and safety regulations and legislation, working at height regulations and safety training and the safe operation and manoeuvring of MEWP machines. Our courses provide hands-on and theoretical training and experience and are taught by experienced training professionals.
Successful candidates will receive an IPAF Powered Access Licence or PAL card which will show the candidates name and photograph. This card shows that the operator is an accredited IPAF operator and that they can legally use both articulated and straight boom platforms and lifts as part of their daily on-site duties.
