Designing better mental healthcare facilities

Training on ‘intricacies of hospital lifts’

Among what IHEEM Knowledge Partner, PPL Training, describes as a ‘raft of new courses’ introduced by it during 2023 were several new HV electrical courses and – ‘specifically for healthcare estates and facilities teams’ – Authorised Person Lifts HTM 08-02 courses (including refresher training and Trapped Passenger Lift Release).

Managing Director, Gary Cooper, said: “In addition, we are now offering a Ventilation Awareness HTM 03-01 course, designed specifically for Ventilation Safety Groups, as well as an NHS Premises Assurance Model course which recently received a fantastic review from an NHS Trust customer.” The introduction of AP Lifts training has seen PPL Training form a working partnership with an established lift industry partner. Kris McGough, MD of Rise Compliance, a qualified LEIA assessor to the lift industry, with a 25-year tenure, will be working with the training specialist on this venture. He said: “I’m thrilled about the prospects that this partnership holds for my training course. Aligned with HTM 08-02, I will be conducting in-centre and on-site training. Recognising the intricacies of hospital lifts, and considering the various component parts and maintenance that render each lift unique, this course offers valuable insights and skills. I’m eager to bring my expertise to contribute to this specialised field."
