What is a MEWP-specific safe-use plan and why do I need to use one?
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), formerly known as AWPs, are one of the safest ways to conduct temporary work at height. IPAF’s analysis of accidents involving the use of MEWPs shows they could often have been prevented by good planning, selecting the correct machine, working to best practice guidance and using trained operators under proper supervision throughout.
If you are operating or planning to operate MEWPs for a work at height task, ask yourself how safe and productive your project will be.
