Our MCWP and Hoist division offers a number of powered access options to clients. Powered access operatives need to be trained to the highest standards to ensure that levels of safety and competency are first priority at all times on site.
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is the body responsible for training and competency standards in this area of the industry. Our resident IPAF instructor delivers training in line with industry requirements to all operatives.
Mast Climbing Work Platform (MCWP) courses covered include the following roles:
We offer a wide range of mast climbing platforms to meet the demands of various project types. Therefore, manufacturer specific machine training is also delivered to all our operatives to ensure expertise and familiarity with each type of machine. These include Scanclimber, Camac and Stros mast climber work platforms and construction hoists.
As with our scaffolding operatives, all powered access operatives are CSCS/CPCS card holders and our site supervisors are all qualified in the Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme/ Site Management Safety Training Scheme. This is run through CITB in line with UKCG mandatory requirements.
