  • MEWPs may encounter wind during operation, this can affect the stability of the machine. MEWPs must be designed and tested to demonstrate stability for operation while exposed to permissible wind speeds or be labelled as designed for indoor use only. Indoor-only MEWPs should only be used in areas where there is no wind force acting on the MEWP. Some MEWPs may be rated for use both indoors and outdoors use.
