Call for comments: Guidance on loading and unloading of MEWPs

1 November 2015 Email this article

The International Powered Access Federation’s (IPAF) working groups are currently drafting several good practice guides relating to drivers and the management of safe loading and unloading of MEWPs.

This will include guidance to identify the responsibilities of contractors, rental companies, transporters and drivers when planning and carrying out loading/unloading activities and guidance for loading and unloading MEWPs on the public highway. All relevant documents are on the consultation page in the IPAF website’s members only area.

IPAF members are encouraged to consider the draft guidance documents and to give constructive comments using the relevant comment forms by 20 November 2015.
