Health & Safety

Kimberly Access has been trading since 1994 and we have always dedicated ourselves to providing our customers with a prompt, reliable and safe service.

Our equipment undergoes stringent safety tests prior to being dispatched on hire via our pre delivery inspection process which consists of 57 different sections, ranging from the hydraulic and electrical systems right through to the paint and body work of the equipment.

If a fault is detected during the inspection process the machine is removed from circulation and quarantined until a full inspection takes place to locate any potential faults, any faults found to be present are rectified then the machine undergoes another full inspection prior to being released back into the operational hire fleet.  Every single piece of equipment we operate in our hire fleet undergoes a routine maintenance schedule also which conforms to the manufacturers recommendations.

Further to the pre delivery inspection process every item in our hire fleet also undergoes a full 6 monthly thorough examination, as set out in the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998.

We at Kimberly Access are dedicated to ensuring that we can offer our customers the very latest innovations available on the market today.  We have invested heavily in our fleet holding to ensure that our products reach you, our customer with an as up to date technology and safety features that are available.

All of our field engineers are able to attend site and carry out 6 monthly mandatory inspections of the equipment you have on hire so as to reduce any possible downtime, the engineers are all supplied with full PPE kits, risk assessment manuals and method statements, so that they are able to provide you with any documentation you may require to enable them to carry out the inspections whilst on your site safely and effectively.

Why Train your staff?

Employers are obliged to train employees in the safe use of work equipment.

The IPAF training programme for platform operators was developed by leading industry professionals.

Each successful trainee is issued with a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), a safety guide, a log book and a certificate, so that they can prove to their employers that they are competent in the safe use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms as and when requested.

IPAF itself does not provide training. Training is provided by approved training centres, mostly manufacturer and rental members of IPAF.

Kimberly Access has approved training centres nationally throughout mainland UK, we are regularly audited by IPAF to ensure that we are working to their exacting standards. Courses generally last one day and are a mixture of theory and practical works, with a written and a practical exam. For more information on IPAF Training courses we can provide, please go to the IPAF Training Page


Kimberly Access is able to provide training, please see more details on our IPAF Training Courses section.

We are also happy to supply you with the relevant Safety Harnesses and Lanyards at very reasonable prices should you require.

We are also more than happy to assist you with site surveys by our very experienced teams should you have difficulty in deciding what type of machine you require for your project.
