consistently ensuring that every customer, regardless of industry, size, or scope of needs, receives the highest level of service and professional advice to ensure customers get the right machine for their specific requirements. “One of the ways we ensure safe working environments for our employees and customers is through training and compliance to regulations which is essential in creating safe working environments,” says Wulfsohn. To operate access equipment, workers are required by law to undertake training. As a business, providing this training is beneficial to Eazi Access customers and their operators. “Our safety promise underscores every facet of our business. Uplift Quality Solutions, our training business, specialises in operator training on mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs), telescopic boom handlers, forklifts, overhead cranes, and mobile cranes. Customers can choose between having their operators trained in line with industry standards and manufacturers’ specifications, or we can provide readily available, trained Eazi Access operators to work on-site,” Wulfsohn adds. Training is important Eazi Access and its training business, Uplift Quality Solutions are both members of the Institute for Work at height (IWH), which is the recognised industry professional body registered with SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority). Members of the IWH are declared fully competent to practice in a specific field of the Work at height Industry and members have to comply with the IWH Code of Ethical conduct. Uplift Quality Solutions is accredited as a training provider by the IWH and is also registered with full accreditation with the TETA (Transport Education Training Authority). The association with IWH and the associated accreditations with the TETA and IWH provides comfort to customers on the quality standards of the training provided, the quality of equipment used for training as well as the issuing of legitimate IWH training certificates. The IWH training certificates have the advantage of avoiding the delays with issuing of training certificates by the TETA and allow the trainee to start operating the respective equipment soon after the training. Keeping safety and training topical within the industry is a key target adopted through the years. However, despite the increased training provided, incidents still happen. Also, with newer and improved models being delivered to the market training continues to be crucial for anyone operating a MEWP. b
