AFI-Uplift takes on CAP
02 April 2008
With the purchase of Central Access, AFI-Uplift is now able to offer CAP Competent Assessed Person assessments in the UK. The CAP programme assesses service and maintenance engineers as competent persons who can perform thorough examinations of access platforms.
A CAP assessment takes one day and covers thorough examination requirements, performance, records and defect reporting. Successful candidates are issued with the CAP Card, which certifies that they have been independently assessed as competent persons having the knowledge and ability to plan, manage or carry out thorough examinations of platforms. In the UK, six-monthly thorough examinations of all equipment used to lift people are required by law under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations LOLER 1998.
