IPAF MEWPS for managers (e-learning)
The IPAF MEWPs for Managers course is essential for all managers and supervisors who need to safely manage work at height and the use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms.
Number of Delegates: Maximum 4
Duration: 1 Day
Companies that use MEWPs need to know what their management responsibilities are – and what their legal responsibilities are. The course covers what managers need to know about the safe use of MEWPs on site, from planning the job and conducting a risk assessment, to selecting the right equipment and mitigating all possible risks.Under UK health and safety legislation, specifically, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Work at Height Regulations 2005, employers must train all employees who plan, supervise and manage work at height and the use of equipment for such work.
This course is about planning, supervising and managing the use of MEWPs, and not about operating equipment. It ends with an online test that candidates must pass. Upon successful completion of the theory test, candidates will receive an IPAF certificate. Those who hold a valid Powered Access Licence for operating equipment can have the MEWPs for Managers (MM) category added to their PAL Card
Who should attend this course?
Employers, project managers, foremen and supervisors working in a broad range of industries such as construction, facilities management, retail, airports and arboriculture. Anyone who is responsible for planning and overseeing the use of MEWPs on their job site.
