NEW QUALIFICATION!

Nov 20, 2013Posted by ABA Admin

 

NEW (ISAC) APPROVED EUROPEAN EQUIPMENT INSPECTION QUALIFICATION

Certificate presentation

Following the successful International Standards & Accreditation Council-ISAC approval of the on-going LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations) project undertaken by the ABA partners, further progress has been made.

Out of a number of candidates examined on knowledge and practical ability to inspect rope access equipment for lifting operations four were successful during recent examinations. These pioneering arborists and mountain rescue personnel from Ireland & Czech Republic commented 'the qualification is on the right track, it will ensure climbers comply with European legislation and raise their knowledge of inspection requirements for lifting equipment which leads to safer standards used at work'.

Certificate presentation

ABA-ISAC approved assessors (2 per candidate) validated the tests which covered in-depth equipment examination methods, interpretation of inspection records and much more. Further development planned for early 2014 includes more equipment inspection tests and evaluation of the level 2 standards for independent examination to International standards.

ICC-EUROPEAN CHAINSAW SUCCESS

Oct 12, 2013Posted by ABA Admin

 

At the recent ABA International-General Assembly held in Czech Republic a great deal of progress was made which includes:

  • Agreement & signing of the ABA Memorandum of Association
  • Establishment of the International Standards & Accreditation Council (ISAC)
  • Testing & updating on the International Skills Register
  • Review & amendments of the International Chainsaw Standards
  • Observation of various Forestry & Machinery skills demonstrations
Certificate presentation

In conclusion, all partners observed a live ICC European Chainsaw assessment of a Czech candidate Mr Adam Cach. Mr Cach successfully passed at both Level 1 & Level 2 demonstrating a very professional performance of his chainsaw skills. Over 200 successful ICC European chainsaw assessments have now taken place & have been recorded on the skills register. Further skills certifications are planned for development & evaluation by ISAC during 2014. Successful evaluations will be added to the qualifications database for use & recognition within partner countries.
