IPAF PAV Push Along Vertical Course

IPAF push along vertical Course

The IPAF PAV Push Along Vertical Course delivers 4 hours of both classroom and practical training and assessment on how to safely operate, select and carry out pre-use inspection of Push Around Vertical Personnel Lifts (PAV).

Operators who are trained in the categories Static Vertical (1a), Mobile Vertical (3a) or Scissor Lift (old IPAF category SL) will also be able to use a Push Around Vertical (PAV) after being familiarised with the specific machine.

Push Around Verticals are essentially small, simple static vertical machines. However, unlike Static Verticals (IPAF category 1a), they have no mechanical drive and are physically pushed around. Popular with contractors and the non-construction sector who are using this type of equipment for low-level access work.
