The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has confirmed it has updated one of its most widely used global safety stickers for use on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) – launching a redesign of the sticker that is applied to machines to indicate where the auxiliary ground controls are located in case of emergency.

MEWP Emergency Lowering Types

Ever thought “what do I do if I’m stuck up in the air”? Or could I bring someone down if they were stuck in the air?

It may be too late to find out when the emergency controls are needed – make sure you know how operate them beforehand!

WHEN IS A RESCUE PLAN NEEDED? It is essential that all work at height is properly planned and carried out in a safe and efficient manner and that includes being prepared for emergencies.

The EWPA has issued a “Walking with Scissor Lifts” guidance document. Following the recent incidents involving a scissor lift.

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) can be subject to side forces. The predominant side forces are those arising from wind and manual forces (e.g. pushing or pulling).  This guidance note outlines the factors that should be considered to reduce the effects of these factors to limits specified by the manufacturer.

WHY ARE GROUND CONDITIONS SO IMPORTANT TO MEWP STABILITY? MEWPs rely on the condition of the surface/ ground on which they stand for their stability.
