IPAF Rental+ passed!

Elev8s safety arrangements and policies have been given the thumbs up once again in a recent IPAF Rental+ audit.

IPAF Rental+ is a certification 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 arrangements
  • Accident recording and statistics
  • Emergency arrangements
  • Risk assessments and method statements
  • Maintenance and the management of thorough examinations of equipment testing.
  • Training and our employee handbook
  • Quality management system
  • Environment and waste management
  • Driver competence and fitness to work
  • Subcontractor competence
  • Site procedures
  • Structured rental order process
  • Delivery, handover, and familiarisation with MEWPs

Kay James, Elev8’s Compliance Manager had this to say about the recent audit;

“It takes a whole team to ensure that Elev8 consistently deliver safe access platform hire to our clients. Many departments from Elev8 were involved with the IPAF Rental+ audit including maintenance, human resources, hire desk, customer care and of course health and safety. I’d like to thank them all their time and input during the audit.”
