Have you planned for the safe delivery of your MEWPs?

The loading and unloading of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), also known as aerial work platforms (AWPs) is a potentially risky activity, as findings from the IPAF accident reporting database show. About a third of the accidents recorded by rental companies involve MEWP delivery drivers.

IPAF-approved training centers offer a course on the loading/unloading of MEWPs. Other relevant courses are MEWPs for ManagersOperator and Demonstrator. Please ensure that you have planned for the safe delivery of MEWPs.
