High Voltage! Campaign raises awareness of MEWPs risks

Electrocutions involving MEWPs are one of the main causes of fatalities in the powered access industry. 

IPAF is running a campaign to raise awareness of the hazards and risks associated with working at height using Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) near power lines.

High Voltage! features a range of resources on how to work safely, including a webinar, guidance for MEWP operators, and a template toolbox talk.

This webinar underpins IPAF’s international safety campaign 2023 – High Voltage! which identifies hazards and risks associated with working near power lines and explains how to avoid electrocutions and work safely.

Hosted by IPAF’s Brian Parker and Mike Ashton, you’ll also hear from three guest speakers.

Speakers include two members of the international working group. Glen Cook and Peter Wellspring. They who were involved in the development of IPAF’s Technical Guidance – The Safe Use of MEWPs in the Vicinity of Power Lines.
