We can provide all Airquee Online e-range inflatables with a PIPA certificate and tag when requested.
The PIPA scheme is designed to help you meet your obligations under Health and Safety legislation. The Health and Safety At Work etc Act 1974 and subsequent regulations require all inflatable play equipment that is "designed to be used by members of the public for entertainment purposes either as a slide or for bouncing upon" is inspected annually.
Bouncy castles, inflatable slides and obstacle courses are covered by the scheme, but anything classified as a toy, to be used in a pool, bungee runs, rodeo bulls are not.
When you are hire any equipment out in return for payment it become subject to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This act places a duty of care on everyone involved in the transaction. This means that the operator, the operator's employees, the hirer, the hirer's employees and the owner or manager of the premises. All involved should do everything possible to ensure the safe use of the equipment.
In addition Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) requires that all work equipment, and including inflatables, must be annually inspected by a competent person - PIPA defines this as someone who has passed a specialised examination and is registered with the RPII.
PIPA is one of only two inspection schemes recognised by the HSE.
When you receive your inflatable from Airquee online it will have a sewn on label that contains the recomended user numbers. It will look the one below.
If you choose to have your inflatable with a PIPA inspection the PIPA tag will be placed on the label as shown below. This ensures the PIPA tag and user numbers are clearly visable for your customers to see.
