  1. Safety Talkmobile elevated work platform

  2. mobile elevated work platform mobile elevated work platform introduction Mobile elevated work platforms (MEWp’s) are useful pieces of plant when used properly. However, they combine height with mobility and can be extremely dangerous if missued.

  3. mobile elevated work platform mobile elevated work platform Main points

  4. mobile elevated work platform Ensure the correct mewp is selected for the task. Take into consideration ground conditions, height, safe working load etc.

  5. mobile elevated work platform only suitable trained operators can used mewp’s. they must be trained for that specific item of plant

  6. mobile elevated work platform When using mewp’s weather conditions should be constantly monitored

  7. mobile elevated work platform mobile elevated work platform other points to consider

  8. mobile elevated work platform Assess ground conditions – an uneven surface could result in mewp overturning

  9. mobile elevated work platform Check for overhead obstructions – especially overhead power lines – remembering the height that the mewp can extended to,

  10. mobile elevated work platform Beware of collision with other vehicles, plant, equipment, scaffold etc. be particularly careful when near public footpaths and streets. Remember to allow for all the full extension of the mewp e.g. boom and arcs.

  11. mobile elevated work platform Always check that the plant is stable prior to use, deploy stabilisers, outriggers etc., as required

  13. mobile elevated work platform Never use rungs as a support for planks, or rungs on planks

  14. mobile elevated work platform It is recommended that operators employ a restraint system as a secondary protection

  15. mobile elevated work platform Never exceed safe working loads

  16. mobile elevated work platform When manoeuvring in tight areas or near public rights of way use a banksman / signaller.

  17. mobile elevated work platform Remember correct refuelling options (LPG, Diesel, etc.). Refuelling should take place in open air where practicable, and the engine must be switched off

  18. mobile elevated work platform Any diesel spillages should be cleaned up immediately

  19. mobile elevated work platform Mewp’s must be subject to thorough examinations at least once every six months, and should be subject to regular local inspections. The results of these inspections should be recorded

  20. mobile elevated work platform mobile elevated work platform conclusion Chance takers are accident makers.
