Avoiding Trapping/Crushing Injuries

IPAF has published a US edition of guidance aimed at avoiding trapping or crushing incidents when aerial work platforms (AWPs) are used in confined overhead spaces. The Best Practice Guidance for AWPs: Avoiding Trapping/Crushing Injuries to People in the Platform was published in April 2011, following the publication of the original UK guidance in July 2010.

The US edition contains references to US legislation and is not intended to be complete guidance on all aspects of AWP operation. Operators of AWPs must at all times be properly trained and familiarized.
