Keep clear of overhead cables. You do not need to touch the power cables to be electrocuted – electricity can arc!

Contractors, end-users and rental companies are urged to download free poster artwork, for use in their daily operations, as part of IPAF’s Andy Access campaign promoting the safe use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), also known as aerial work platforms (AWPs), and mast climbing work platforms (MCWPs).

Simple posters featuring the characters Andy Access and Hugh Hazard form the basis of this campaign. Each poster illustrates a specific safety message on how to use MEWPs correctly. 

The Andy Access posters have originated as a means of communicating the valuable learning outcomes identified from the IPAF accident reporting project, and as a means of reinforcing the key messages covered in IPAF’s training programes.
