HSS Training is now issuing the new IPAF Smart PAL Card instead of the standard PAL Card.
 •     The IPAF Smart PAL Card and reader system can be used to verify if pre-use checks have been done.   
 •     Access to machines can be restricted - the MEWP can be set to only start if operators have a valid IPAF Smart PAL Card which proves they are trained for the appropriate machine category.
 •     An electronic logbook can be created for individual operators - showing which machines they have operated, for how long and where.
 •     Smartcard systems can be integrated for industry-wide coverage.
 •     The Smart PAL Card will continue to have security features, such as the cardholder's photo, signature and an IPAF logo printed as a hologram.

All operator courses booked from the 21st May 2014 will be issued with the new IPAF Smart PAL Card.

If you already hold a valid PAL Card, you can upgrade to the new IPAF Smart PAL Card here.

The replacement IPAF Smart PAL Card will retain the expiry date of your original card.
