'Spread the Load' Video
What is 'Spread the load'?
IPAF has launched a safety campaign calling for the proper assessment of ground conditions and the correct use of stabilisers, outriggers and spreader plates.
IPAF’s “Spread the load!” campaign is built around this simple and straightforward message:
Spreader plates should always be used with boom-type mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) when fully supported on their outriggers.
Spreader plates should be used with all other MEWPs that have outriggers unless a risk assessment indicates they are not necessary.
