IPAF introduces 'spot the mistake' video for MEWP operators

IPAF has produced a new safety video for MEWP (mobile elevating work platform) operators called “Spot the Mistake” which highlights correct and incorrect procedures and can be freely downloaded from the Publications/Film section of IPAF’s website.

The 20-minute video has six scenarios (extracted from the IPAF operator training course) each of which contains a common operator error. Viewers have a chance to identify the mistake before the correct procedure is shown.

 вЂњThe video encapsulates the most common operator errors and what the right procedures should be,” said Rupert Douglas-Jones, IPAF international training manager. However, the organisation stresses that viewing the video is not a substitute for proper operator training.
