New E-Learning Module Launched 

Ipaf have rolled out an exciting new change to the way we deliver their training program. While traditionally the entire course (both theory & practical) is usually held on site, we are now able to offer an E-Learning module. This E-Learning module focuses on a section of the theoretical training and can be completed off-site. This offers our candidates flexibility in how, when and where they learn the theoretical component prior to sitting the tests under supervision at the training centre. The E-Learning module engages the candidate with interactive quizzes, games, videos and simulations. The E-learning module does not replace the practical training section which is to be undertaken under supervision at the training centre and it remains a requirement that all candidates are to pass both sessions. Please note that ALL tests are still sat under supervision, on site.
For further training enquiries contact Jill on 03 341 3571 or email training@accessman.co.nz

Accessman have further been involved in the sponsorship of equipment for a movie being filmed locally! 'The Stolen' is a period piece set in the 1860's Goldrush era of the South Island.

Wind Ratings on Machines 

We have had a number of calls lately regarding the interpretation under the Best Practice Guide as to just what is meant by “Wind Rated” elevated work platforms.Without making this sound over simplified, Wind Rated machines can be used outside subject to the stated tolerances printed on decals, the serial plate and the operator’s handbook, all found on every machine in our fleets.For a machine to be wind rated if must have gone through a recognised testing program at the manufacturing stage of its production.

Clearly we have a large fleet and range of EWP’s, if you are working outside, you must under the Best Practice Guidelines make sure the machine you are operating is wind rated, so please ask for the right machine at the time of order.

A number of our battery operated EWP’s are not in fact wind rated, so to choose to operate these outside would be ill-advised, as this goes against the stated objectives of the Best Practice Guide, to support the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

Next month….How many people am I allowed on my EWP?

Cheers Al McNeill
