Back to Basics!June 06, 2018
Here at Warren Access, our customers know that we are passionate about encouraging the safe use of all machines whilst working at height. We also recognise the importance of all operators having suitable training and familiarisation before using access machines.
The ‘Back to Basics’ campaign launched by IPAF this year reminds us that Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) are designed to provide safe access for temporary work at height – but they are only a safe option if the work is planned and managed appropriately.
IPAF’s ‘Back to Basics’ campaign identifies six recognised potential hazards that must be considered if accidents are to be prevented. These hazards can be avoided if users and operators follow essential safe-use practices.”
