IPAF Launches Andy Access Safety Posters | Construction News


Contractors, end-users and rental companies are urged to download free poster artwork for use in their daily operations, as part of IPAF’s latest Andy Access campaign promoting the safe use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). In North America, MEWPs are known as aerial work platforms (AWPs).

Simple posters featuring the characters Andy Access and Hugh Hazard form the basis of this campaign. Three posters are featured in the launch and new posters will be released every few months. Each poster illustrates a specific safety message on how to use MEWPs (AWPs) correctly.

“The Andy Access posters have originated as a means of communicating the valuable learning outcomes identified from the IPAF accident reporting project (www.ipaf.org/incident), and as a means of reinforcing the key messages covered in IPAF’s training programs,” said Chris Wraith, IPAF technical & safety executive.

Andy Access posters are available in several languages and artwork can be downloaded from www.ipaf.org/andyaccess
