When a MEWP is delivered or collected from a site, loading and unloading on the public highway should be avoided wherever possible. The aim is to minimise risk to employees and members of the public by ensuring delivery vehicles park away from public highways and pavements.
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) are supplied with both ground and platform controls to comply with International MEWP design standards. Manufacturer’s operators’ manuals identify that the primary operator control station is in the platform and that the ground controls should only be used to carry out pre-use inspections without anyone in the platform, or for emergency descent purposes as part of a rescue plan.
This webinar explores the benefits of using mast climbing work platforms for facade work over other available options. Also included is an update on the MCWP HSE Safety Alert issued earlier this year by the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE), and interpretation of the safety elements in the MCWP European regulation EN1495.

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), are a safe and effective means of access for undertaking temporary work at height tasks. It is important to remember a MEWP is only as safe as the person who is operating it. If this equipment is used incorrectly, unsafely or by inexperienced people, accidents and fatalities are more likely to happen.
This Toolbox Talk provides some safety measures which can reduce the risk of falls from the platform.
Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are a safe way of providing temporary access at height for tree care work and vegetation control. Overgrown or overhanging trees and vegetation require management and MEWPs provide an ideal solution for this. This task is necessary in both urban and rural locations – often in public areas close to pedestrians and passing traffic. Pruning or removing branches can be a hazardous task, especially if trees are in the proximity of power lines or communications cables or the platform is poorly positioned in relation to the work area.
The webinar examines the components of the IPAF Rental+ scheme, how it aligns with the construction Common Assessment Standard and the measurable benefits to rental companies. Speakers will highlight the advantages contractors and end users enjoy when using a rental company that holds the IPAF Rental+ standard. Sponsored by MCS, Sinoboom, Palazzani, Hinowa and insphire.
