    This webinar will look at the role of a MEWP Safe Use Plan in the prevention of accidents involving MEWPs. A Plan ensures that prior to putting a MEWP into operation, safe use protocols are in place to influence good behaviours. A Plan also confirms that effective management of risks associated with the work, and risks specific to the type of work, have been considered.

    Sponsored by Sunward and Hinowa.
