What Cherry Pickers are?

A cherry picker Cheap Paul Coffey Jersey , whatever image its name might conjure in your head, is actually an aerial work platform. This is simply a platform at the end of a hydraulically-operated boom. Its other (and more technical) names include elevated work platform, man lift, basket crane, or hydra ladder.

Another common name for these machines is Mobile Elevated Work Platform, or MEWP. They are sometimes mounted on the back of a heavy vehicle such as a truck (called a ‘truck mount’), or a flat-bed van (known as a ‘van mount’).

What Cherry Pickers do?

The basket at the top of the boom is the business end of the MEWP. Originally, <"http:www.skyhigh.orgtraining.htm">cherry pickers were used to pick fruits (not just cherries) from trees too tall to reach by human hands, and are still used for this purpose.

MEWPs also find wide use in servicing telephone, cable, and electricity lines on utility poles. They can also be used to install Christmas light arrangements and banners on building facades. Window cleaners can also make use of these to clean hard-to-reach windows or building-long structural glazing treatments.

Certain fire engines carry a cherry picker-style basket called a ‘snorkel’ in place of a ladder. Cherry pickers also find extensive use in the fields of mining, construction Cheap Jaromir Jagr Jersey , and exterior painting.

The Dangers of MEWPs

As with a lot of great technology, MEWPs pose a bit of a risk too. When operating a cherry picker, personnel are subject to a number of hazards.


This is where an operator gets stuck between the basket and the fixed structure. For instance, when operating near overhead steelwork, the operator may get pinned against the controls and therefore lose control over the boom.

This can prove highly dangerous, and even fatal.


Especially with tall, heavy booms, there is the risk that the equipment overturns (or) sways and throws the operator from the basket.

Other risks include the operator falling from the basket through hisher own clumsiness, and that of collision of the boom with pedestrians andor nearby structures.

What The IPAF is?

The International Powered Access Federation is an organization established to ensure the safe and effective use of powered access devices such as MEWPs. They do this by providing safety initiatives and training programs for operators. This is a non-profit establishment, and members include manufacturers, rental companies, contractors Cheap Larry Murphy Jersey , and users.

What The IPAF does?

The ‘IPAF Operation Course for Scissor Lift and Cherry Picker’ is a classroom-based as well as practical course for said operators over 2 days. This helps operators understand the effective and safe operation of these powered-access devices. On successful completion of the course, delegates are awarded an IPAF certificate and an IPAF PAL photo ID card; both of these serve as proof of the operators’ ability and knowledge regarding the use of devices including MEWPs.

If you’re planning on using devices like cherry pickers in your organization, it’s a great idea to hire IPAF-certified operators and ensure that untrained operators undertake the 2-day course. This ensures the safety of operators as well as efficient use of the equipment, both of which are great for the organization.

Is an engineering degree your golden ticket to financial gains? Alonzo Sirmans
Submitted 2014-09-23 18:57:12 An Australian Graduate Survey (Graduate Careers Australia, 2012) revealed that engineering ranked third in the top 10 study areas that demonstrated the best graduate employment outcomes. This raises the question, do you really need a degree to successfully obtain a job in engineering and does a degree automatically mean post graduate wealth?

Thirty years ago a university degree was your golden key to corporate and financial success. It was a means of demonstrating your expertise and worth in a competitive job market with very little opportunities. Like most economies the Australian job market has changed significantly over the past three decades and we have seen a workforce increase of 81% since 1984 (MCCRINDLE, 2014) and a workforce transition from industrial to professional.

In 1984 the biggest employers were all industrial and now in 2014 the professional, finance, mining and utilities sectors make up the largest industries by workforce. This transition has seen a substantial change in the prerequisites required for job seekers to gain employment. Where work based experience a.
