PAV Training – Push Around Vertical
Push around Verticals (PAV) is the term used for (usually) small, non-mechanical vertical platforms that can be maneuvered into place manually (without the need for an engine of any kind). These platforms provide a low level access platform. Designed to meet working at height regulations, they are much safer than ladders and steps and cheaper than scaffolding and powered access platforms. Despite being very safe, operators of Push Around Verticals do require training in order to minimise risk.
PAVs are now becoming increasingly popular in a variety of workplaces including warehouses, store rooms and factories. As such, a much wider range of employees are required to operate them at some point. Ensuring that all staff are trained to operate them safely greatly reduces the risk of an accident, providing reassurance to managers, supervisors and employers.
Who should attend PAV training?
Anyone who is likely to operate a PAV in a workplace environment should complete PAV training. This will, in the largest part, include warehouse and stores staff but could potentially include people in a wide range of working environments; potentially any place where staff work at height.
