    Guidance on Emergency Rescue

    Normal and auxiliary control systems built into a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) will allow the operator to bring the platform of the machine safely to ground level under controlled conditions. It is extremely unusual not to be able to lower the platform using these controls or for all of these systems to fail. The following is an example of a rescue plan for people who work at height using a MEWP.

    Power Lines Guidance

    Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), also known as Aerial work platforms (AWPs), are probably the safest way of doing temporary work at height. Stay safe
    when near to power lines/conductors. Electrocutions were the single largest cause of fatalities to MEWP/AWP operators in the US in 2012.
