In consultation with manufacturers, contractors, hire companies and other interested parties, IPAF has produced this good practice guide listing some of the key points that should be taken into consideration by rental companies and their customers when managing any type of Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP).

This good practice listing was produced following requests for guidance when managing “large or complex” MEWPs. However, IPAF and the access industry acknowledge that the key principles of good MEWP management are relevant to all types of MEWP and not limited to “large and complex” machines.
