UK-based MEWP rental major AFI will hold a webinar next week entitled: HSEQ - Rescue Plan for Working at Height

As AFI will point out during the webinar on Tuesday 28 August, it is a legal requirement to have a rescue plan when working at height. But, once a rescue plan is prepared and disseminated how many would actually work, and more importantly how many are rehearsed?

The webinar will be presented by Brian Parker, business development manager, technical support, at AFI. Parker will outline the requirements and considerations when preparing a MEWP rescue plan. He will also discuss the reasons why not having a workable communicated MEWP rescue plan is not sufficient.

Parker has held senior health and safety roles within the working at height sector for nearly 20 years, including 15 years as a senior IPAF training instructor. He is an IPAF UK Council member and Chairman of the PASMA Training Committee. He is a current member of IPAF Training Committee, an active member of the Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group MEWPs committee, and a member of the HAE Tools, Plant and Equipment Board.
