The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), a not-for-profit members' organization that promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment, continues to meet the ISO 9001:2000 standard, having recently passed the main triennial audit.
‘We are extremely pleased to have independent confirmation of IPAF's good track record, both in general management systems and in its industry-led operator training program,’ says Tim Whiteman, IPAF managing director.
ISO 9001 relates to good quality management practices for organizations, and IPAF has been independently audited against this standard since 2003.
ISO 18878 refers specifically to the correct procedures to run a platform operator training program. The IPAF PAL card operator training program conforms to this standard.
The audit report highlighted positive aspects such as IPAF's experience and involvement with technical committees, manufacturers, associations and other interested parties.
