This poster is about the risk of entrapment.
Unfortunately over the past few years a number of accidents involving the use of MEWPs have occurred, including tragically fatalities. Some of these incidents have involved the operator or other person being crushed against fixtures or other obstacles while working at height. Too often this has occurred when a job is being rushed and normal safety and risk assessment procedures have been compromised.
The poster is a reminder to be aware of overhead obstacles and other potential risks.
