Elev8 certified by IPAF Rental+

Here at Elev8 our goal is to be the safest access company in the world.  We invest in training and development of our employees, we purchase some of the best access equipment in the world and welcome external audit and certification of our systems.

IPAF Rental+ is the latest certification added to Elev8’s collection.   IPAF Rental+ is designed specifically for the powered access equipment hire sector.  It is proof that a hire company has been independently audited and meets rigorous standards of training, equipment inventory and customer satisfaction.

During the audit the IPAF Rental+ auditor reviewed all stages of the Elev8’s MEWP hire process to check we are operating to best practice in the powered access industry.  Some of the areas covered by the audit are:

  • Health and Safety
  • Quality management system
  • Environment and waste management
  • Training
  • Driver competence and fitness to work
  • Subcontractor competence
  • Site procedures
  • Risk assessment
  • Management of thorough examinations of equipment
  • Structured rental order process
  • Delivery, handover, and familiarisation with MEWPs


Safety and the quality of our access hire service are of paramount importance to Elev8.  We know how essential it is to choose the right access supplier when you need to work at height.  To speed up the selection and qualification process for our clients we maintain several external certifications.
