What is “Clunk Click?”
Clunk Click is a worldwide campaign calling for all users of boom type platforms to wear a full body harness with energy-absorbing lanyards attached to a suitable anchor point.
The campaign started as a grassroots initiative by the UK Powered Access Interest Group (PAIG), a joint committee of the Construction Plant-hire Association and IPAF. Major rental companies took the initiative because unnecessary fatal accidents were happening when users were catapulted out of boom platforms because they were not wearing harnesses.
IPAF launched international versions of Clunk Click, including the German “Click Clack”, the Italian “Clic Clac” and the North American “Click It”. The campaign has the support of the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE), the UK Contractors Group (UKCG), the Hire Association of Europe (HAE) and the German Association of Construction Equipment Engineers (VDBUM).
