Work at height rescue planning

Static Author Display NameHealth & Safety

The Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group (SFPSG) has published new guidance on the rescue of persons from MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Work Platforms).

Whenever such equipment is used there is always the risk of persons in the work platform becoming stranded at height e.g. due to malfunction, breakdown or an outside influence and it is essential that plans are put in place to rescue persons from the work platform in such circumstances. The new guidance helps users to plan for such situations.

“Rescue of Persons from MEWPs” is free to download from the Construction Plant Association (CPA) website at www.cpa.uk.net/sfpsgpublications
