As the established trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry, FASET exists to protect the health and safety of those working at height in the construction and FM sectors. We take a keen interest in the latest news and developments affecting our industry and are keen to share the following story from the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF).
Contractors, end-users and rental companies are urged to download free poster artwork, for use in their daily operations, as part of IPAF’s #AndyAccess campaign promoting the safe use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and mast climbing work platforms (MCWPs).
Simple posters featuring the characters Andy Access and Hugh Hazard form the basis of this campaign. Each poster illustrates a specific safety message on how to use MEWPs correctly.
The Andy Access posters have originated as a means of communicating the valuable learning outcomes identified from the IPAF accident reporting project, and as a means of reinforcing the key messages covered in IPAF’s training programmes.
