What to look for when recruiting a temp IPAF operator

IPAF - or International Powered Access Federation - Operators are able to safely use powered access equipment, or MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Working Platform) as they are sometimes called.

Before hiring a person it is vital to understand that you will be subject to the Work at Height Regulations 2005, which require you to ensure any work is properly planned, supervised and completed out by competent people who will be familiar with any platform device you may have, such as scissor lifts, cherry pickers, truck mounted platforms and other such lifting equipment.

IPAF operators themselves are legally required to have training to comply with the Work at Height Regulations: they may have formal proof in terms of an IPAF card, or Powered Access License (PAL), which is valid for 5 years. Alternatively, they may hold an PASMA card (Prefabricated Access Suppliers' & Manufacturers' Association). They will also have a legal requirement to take reasonable care and attention of themselves and others who could be impacted by their work. They will need to co-operate with you to ensure that your health and safety obligations are met.

Reputable agencies specialising in the construction and warehouse sectors will understand the full set of requirements, and can ensure that they supply workers whose credentials and IPAF / PASMA cards have been checked. They should probably also have a CSCS card and the right to work in the UK.

Clearly given the risks involved it is important that you satisfy yourself that you are hiring competent workers.

You probably have a good idea of what you need a IPAF operator to do for you. But to make things easy, we give you a job description to start from and a suggested budget. Typically IPAF operators will perform the following duties:

  • Driving and operating a scissor lift in confined spaces on a large construction site
  • Assisting other tradesmen as required

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £17.87 and £21.96 per hour for IPAF operators. This includes what the candidate is paid, their National Insurance and holiday payments, as well as the agency margin. Your budget should take into account the experience of the secretary and their working location. For example, expect to pay more in London, where the Living Wage is £10.55 per hour.
