New MEWP guidance is now available for construction firms.
IPAF has issued guidance on the ‘catapult’ or whiplash effect which can occur when using mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and result in occupants or materials being ejected from the MEWP.
This will ensure that work at height is properly planned with adequate control measures to prevent serious or fatal injury.
IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) is a Build UK Member.
Build UK is a supporter of the CIP Construction Health and Safety Manual.
