IPAF Rental+ goes for SSIP


Members of the IPAF Rental+ Committee have agreed on new requirements which will now be submitted for the UK’s Safety Systems in Procurement (SSIP) accreditation.

“The current IPAF Rental+ requirements are being extended, for instance, to cover risk assessment, incident management environmental aspects,” said Lynn Price, IPAF audit and Quality Control Manager. “With additional points to be covered, the audit process will become more stringent. The benefit is that the external SSIP accreditation will lend more credibility to the IPAF Rental+ quality mark.”

The SSIP acts as an umbrella organisation to facilitate between health and safety assessment schemes whereever it is practicable to do so. SSIP assessments are all judged on core criteria approved by the UK Health & Safety Executive. The core criteria for assessing health and safety compliance of contractors and consultants working in the construction industry are defined under the Construction Design & Management Regulations 2007.

COVID - 19

COVID – 19

Here at APL/APC we are committed to safety and are actively doing our part to reduce the chances of COVID-19 spreading. Whilst we employ a number of these practices anyway, we are taking extra care that all of our staff follow them.

Upon returning to our HQ, each machine is thoroughly cleaned with G101 multi purpose cleaner and extra attention is taken on high risk areas of the machine such as keypads and control boxes using special Biocidal cleaner.

All of our drivers have been given special disinfectant wipes and cleaning supplies to keep their trucks clean and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

We are also disinfecting our offices daily and have adopted many safeguarding techniques including keeping a 2m distance between any two people at one time.
