IPAF Webinar: IPAF Rental+ for Contractors

Online via YouTube
21 July 2022, 12pm GMT+1 (UK time)

The IPAF Rental+ standard is the powered access industry’s guarantee of a quality hire/rental company. Being a condition of IPAF Rental membership in the UK, the annual audit ensures members have met and maintain the highest standards of training, equipment inventory and customer satisfaction.

The webinar will examine the components of the IPAF Rental+ scheme, how it aligns with the construction Common Assessment Standard and the measurable benefits to rental companies. Speakers will highlight the advantages contractors and end-users enjoy when using a rental company that holds the IPAF Rental+ standard and how the scheme instils compliance and good practices within a rental company leading to improved safety on construction sites.
