IPAF to offer free safety advice at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

All CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 attendees who visit the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) stand can learn how to select the suitable MEWP for the job, develop a MEWP specific safe-use plan, and train operators and supervisors to improve workplace safety by complying with the new ANSI standards, which come into legal effect later this year.

IPAF staff will offer free advice and share technical expertise with anyone planning the use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) and Mast-Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs).

IPAF North American Council is sponsoring free registration to its new ANSI-compliant MEWP Supervisor training course on March 8 or 9, prior to Conexpo opening on March 10.

Visitors to the IPAF stand can learn the answers to the following key questions:

  • Why should I follow ANSI standards to keep my workers safe?
  • What is a MEWP-specific safe-use plan - and why do you need one?
  • Why must you train MEWP operators and those who supervise them?
  • How can selecting the right MEWP save both time and lives?
  • How can IPAF's safety campaigns assist you in managing risk?

"There is zero defense should someone get injured or killed on your watch in arguing that you did not know what a MEWP-specific safe use plan is; did not realize you need to train supervisors as well as operators; or do not understand the difference between familiarization, ie showing someone a machine's controls and operation, and thorough operator training, which includes relevant theory and rigorous practical assessment - all of which are required in the new ANSI standards," said Tony Groat, IPAF's North America Regional Manager.
