PAL Card unaffected by CSCS announcement

PAL Card unaffected by CSCS announcement

31 January 2015 Email this article

IPAF has confirmed that its PAL Card will continue to be accepted by the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) and Government bodies as proof of appropriate training in the use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).

The confirmation follows a statement issued by the Strategic Forum noting that members of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) have decided to specify and promote occupational card schemes carrying the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) logo.

Under the CLC policy, some sites, notably those funded by public procurement, will specify that individuals must prove they have the agreed standard of qualification and skill for their trade/profession by producing a card with a CSCS logo on it.

However, the UKCG has confirmed to IPAF that: “The PAL Card continues to be recognised by UKCG members as proof of successful completion of appropriate training to operate MEWPs.”
