Always use spreader plates with outriggers, says new industry campaign from IPAF
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) launched a new safety campaign at APEX, calling for the proper assessment of ground conditions and the correct use of stabilisers, outriggers and spreader plates.
IPAF’s “Spread the load!” campaign is built around this simple and straightforward message:
Spreader plates should always be used with boom-type mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) when fully supported on their outriggers.
