This webinar investigates the obstacles that prevent progress – from issues with infrastructure, resistance-culture, perceived cost, and awareness of machine capability and, importantly, how we might approach overcoming these blockers and find where the opportunity lies. Guest speakers from different industry perspectives will take the pulse of the ‘fleet electrification culture’, looking at data from different countries and examining how barriers can be overcome.
MEWPs may encounter wind during operation, this can affect the stability of the machine. MEWPs must be designed and tested to demonstrate stability for operation while exposed to permissible wind speeds or be labelled as designed for indoor use only. Indoor-only MEWPs should only be used in areas where there is no wind force acting on the MEWP. Some MEWPs may be rated for use both indoors and outdoors use.
IPAF has developed this guide to assist in your development of your MEWP-specific safe-use plan. The ANSI A92.22 MEWP Safe-Use standard specifies requirements for the application, inspection, training, maintenance, repair, and safe operation of MEWPs. A safe-use program specific to MEWPs shall be developed by the user to ensure all responsibilities are met.
