  • Have you planned for the safe delivery of your MEWPs? The loading and unloading of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) is a potentially risky activity, as findings from the IPAF accident reporting database show. About a third of the accidents recorded by rental companies involve MEWP delivery drivers.

    IPAF-approved training centres offer a course on the loading/unloading of MEWPs. Other relevant courses are MEWPs for Managers, Operator and Demonstrator. Please ensure that you have planned for the safe delivery of MEWPs.

    Inspections

    Is your equipment legal and safe to use? Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are one of the safest ways to perform temporary work at height. Keep your equipment safe through good maintenance regimes ranging from pre-use checks, to regular thorough examinations as required by law, to major inspections.
