The loading and unloading of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) is a potentially risky activity, as findings from the IPAF accident reporting database show. The IPAF Loading/Unloading course will help MEWP operators minimise risk, providing clear guidance and training on how to safely load, unload and secure machinery prior to or following transportation by road.
IPAF class sizes are kept small so that Training 4 Safety can pay particular attention to delegates’ needs. IPAF Loading/Unloading courses generally last one day are a mixture of theory and practice, with a written and a practical test.
Following completion of the IPAF Loading/Unloading delegates will:
- be aware of the relevant Health and Safety legislation,
- be aware of accident control and prevention measures,
- be aware of the need to wear PPE and requirements, and
- be able to safely load, unload and secure different types of machinery onto the body of a suitable vehicle
