IPAF releases MEWP safety video
By Lindsey Anderson10 September 2009
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has created a new video for mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) operators.
"Spot the Mistake" is a 20-minute video focusing on six different scenarios extracted from IPAF operator training courses. Each section plays out with a deliberate mistake, allowing viewers to identify the issue and then the correct procedure is shown for clarification.
"The video encapsulates the most common operator erros and what the right procedures should be," said Robert Douglas-Jones, IPAF international training manager. "It's a great educational tool and we thank all the producers and actors for their enthusiasm in making the scenes realistic."
The video is available in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish versions and is available for download at www.ipaf.org in the publications/film section.
