The course is aimed at trained operators who will be loading or unloading heavy plant machinery including MEWPS, dumpers, excavators, telehandlers etc. Applicants must hold a current PAL Card or MEWP operator licence.
The course incorporates a highly interactive theory element followed by a short test, and a focus on practical training with assessment of hands-on skills
Loading, transportation, and unloading of plant machinery are vital logistical activities across many industries including powered access and construction. However, analysis of accident data reveals too many people are injured during the process of these activities.
IPAF’s Safe Loading & Unloading course examines how these accidents occur and critically, how to prevent them to ensure safe and effective best practice.
Candidates will learn:
- To safely load, unload and secure plant machinery onto a suitable vehicle using appropriate equipment
ready for transportation on a public highway
- To link methods of work to legal requirements
- To identify associated hazards & apply effective control measures to prevent accidents
Courses are run nationally 6 days a week. For further information fill out the form below.
