BJB Lift Trucks are delighted to announce they have now added the prestigious IPAF accreditation to their portfolio of training awarding bodies. This accreditation rounds off a significant period of investment in work at height training for the Grimsby based firm. The £35,000.00 investment included the purchase of a Genie scissor lift and Genie boom.

Director, Peter Harvey, commented, “We have delivered accredited MEWP training for a number of years but now we are a fully approved IPAF training centre we can really push it forward. As a company that already sells and hires scissor lifts and booms, its great to be able to offer our customers accredited training on this equipment too!”

The Estate Road 1 centre in Grimsby is now working with a team of 3 IPAF instructors, a couple of whom are also qualified PASMA instructors. Now that the IPAF training is moving forward, accreditation with the portable scaffolding awarding body could be next on the BJB radar. Peter said, “We are getting more and more enquiries for the PASMA accredited training and it seems to go hand in hand with IPAF, particularly for contract workers. It is something we are certainly evaluating with a view to adding it to our training provision in the future.”
