A Mobile Elevating Work Platform, more commonly known as a MEWP, is an umbrella term for various different types of powered access platforms and cherry pickers. MEWPs are typically used across a wide range of different industries, such as construction and warehousing, primarily in order to assist employees working at height.
Those who are required to use MEWPs at work should undergo full MEWP training before using the equipment in order to comply with regulations and fulfil safety requirements.
Do I Need MEWP Training?
MEWP training is important for anyone who operates or maintains any type of MEWP as part of their job role. Regardless of whether your employees use MEWPs on a daily basis or they are only needed sporadically, the correct training is essential in order to ensure that everyone stays safe whilst they are working. After all, it’s not just about keeping yourself safe – full training is all about ensuring the safety and security of colleagues and anyone else in the vicinity, too. The importance of safety should never be overlooked.
