The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has issued guidance for exiting platforms at height.

The two-page document starts by saying that mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), known more commonly as aerial work platforms (AWPs) here in North America, are designed for people to work from within the platform, but that in some exceptional cases, exiting at height may be permitted.

It goes on to say that a “robust risk assessment” should be conducted to assure that exiting the platform is the safest and most effective means of accessing a particular location.
