Who should attend?

Those working for rental companies who need to determine which type of MEWP a client should rent/hire from them for the work required.

Safety professionals who need to assess whether or not the MEWP being used is the best selection for the task.

Course Aim:

Selecting a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) can be complex and challenging.

Factors covered include height, reach, up-and-over height, weight of people, required materials & tools, environment, restrictions, set-up, hazards, permits, accessories, delivery, and completion of documentation to justify the selection.
