Mobile Elevated Work Platform Training

Mobile Elevated Work Platform Training

Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP) are essential in accessing hard to reach places. They have become the preferred choice over ladders and scaffoldings due to their safety and mobility. 

While MEWP may be safer as compared to ladders and scaffoldings, using them still comes with risks. To be more precise, workers using MEWPs, especially those without proper training, can get into an accident.

MEWP-related accidents include: falling, getting trapped in between the basket and a fixed structure, overturning and collision with structures, cars or overhead cables. 

It is imperative that employees who use MEWPs are properly trained so that the risks involved in operating them are managed and minimised. 

iSafe, Ireland’s leading health and safety training provider, offers an MEWP course that is fully compliant with the Guidance on Safe Operating Procedures for MEWPs released in 2017 by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) of Ireland.

This MEWP course covers a selection of scissor-lift, cherry picker and telescopic boom training as per client requirements.
