Powered access specialist Star Platforms has been re-certified as an IPAF Rental+ company after being awarded a 98% score during an independent audit.
Achieving the certification, which included a site visit to a Star Platforms depot, shows the company meets recognised high standards in training, equipment inventory and customer satisfaction.
The Rental+ scheme is operated by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and is used globally to identify rental companies that set standards specified by the federation.
Star Platforms QHSE Manager Del Patterson, who oversaw the auditing process, said the high score reflected the quality of Star Platform’s operations and services.
He added: “Being given a 98% score in a IPAF Rental+ renewal assessment is a great achievement, so every colleague in the Star Platforms team can be proud of their contribution.
“Being IPAF Rental+ certified reflects our commitment to supporting our customers and to improving safety standards in the powered access industry. Our customers can be sure they’re using high quality platforms and are fully supported by Star Platforms.”
An independent auditor inspected Star Platforms’ South West region depot in Bridgewater, Somerset, as part of the re-certification process.
Critical quality standards
All key aspects of powered access rental operations were assessed, including maintenance, training and safety records, environmental standards, and finance, as well as company policies and procedures.
Achieving IPAF Rental+ certification confirms Star Platforms meets critical industry quality standards. It also satisfies most UK tender pre-qualification requirements, including SSIP certification.
Star Platforms is one of the UK’s fastest-growing access rental specialists. Its HQ is in Houghton Regis, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, and it delivers its services from seven operational depots.
