MEWPs for Managers (MM)

IPAF Training Course

Companies that use MEWPs need to know what their management and legal responsibilities are and how to ensure the most effective use of MEWPs. This course covers what managers need to know for safe and effective use of MEWPs on site, including planning the job, conducting a risk assessment, selecting the right equipment for optimum cost-effciency and mitigating all possible risks.

This course is about planning, supervising and managing the use of MEWPs, and not about operating equipment. It ends with a theory 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.
