Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) are common access systems widely in use in the construction, marine and maintenance industries. Recent accidents have highlighted the need for all to understand how we need to work together to safeguard the user, owner, hirer and public who are working on or with MEWPs side by side.
