MEWPs rescue safety guidance

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 9:04 am

A concise safety document entitled ‘Rescue of Persons from MEWPs’ has been published by the Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group.

The 10-page publication provides guidance to put plans in place to rescue powered access users if they should become stranded at height. It has been compiled by the Forum’s MEWPs Group, which is chaired by the CPA and administered and supported by IPAF.

Kevin Minton, Chief Executive of the CPA, said: “We anticipate that the guidance will be a useful reference tool for MEWP hire companies, customers, operators and manufacturers. When MEWPs are used there is always an inherent risk of people becoming stranded at height due to a machine malfunctioning, breaking down or other influences.

“Although measures can be put into place to reduce the risk such as regular maintenance of equipment and the use of competent, medically fit operators, it is still important that organisations have plans in place should a rescue from a MEWP ever become necessary.” The publication is available for free download at www.cpa.uk.net/sfpsgpublications
