IPAF Harness

IPAF Harness

This is a CITB grant funded training course – find out more

Delegates will learn how to Inspect and use a harness when using a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP).
Please note: Delegates will need to bring their own harness and lanyard for the course so it can be used for demonstration purposes.


Course Details

Course Overview
Number of Delegates: Maximum 10

Duration: 4 Hours

Overview: Objectives

By the end of the course the delegates will:
  • Understand the relevant Health and Safety Regulations, Guidance and Standards
  • Be able to identify and select the correct form of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) against falls from height when working from a MEWP.
  • Understand how to check, use, maintain and store a harness and lanyard
  • Be able to fit and adjust a harness and lanyard
  • Be able to conduct a periodic examination on a MEWP harness and its associated equipment
Who should Attend

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) strongly recommends a full body harness with an adjustable lanyard (used to provide work restraint and adjusted to be as short as possible) is used when working from a boom type MEWP. Training is absolutely vital as the repercussions of poorly fitted harnesses or incorrect product selection can be fatal.
