IPAF Re-Mounted Boom

IPAF’s Technical & Safety department has issued global guidance on the remounting of second-hand MEWP equipment on a different chassis. The guidance emphasises the difficulty and high level of engineering expertise required to mount MEWPs on a chassis other than those for which they were originally designed, cautioning that “failure to mount or re-mount a MEWP correctly can and has led to serious accidents worldwide”.
