Best Practice Guidance for MEWPs Avoiding Trapping / Crushing Injuries to People in the Platform

A mobile elevating work platform (often referred to as a MEWP) saves time and makes work at height
efficient, effective and safer than using traditional methods of access. When used safely, MEWPs
significantly reduce the risk of injuries through falling from height.

Unfortunately over the past few years a significant number of accidents involving the use of MEWPs
have occurred, including tragically fatalities. Some of these incidents have involved the operator or other
person being crushed against fixtures or other obstacles while accessing their work area, or while
working at height. The incidents could have been prevented by correct planning and preparation,
selection of appropriate machinery and proper use.
