Frequently Asked Questions

What is a secondary guard?

Primary guarding devices are safety systems that are fitted as standard to MEWPS to prevent inadvertent operation, in accordance with the European Union MEWP design standard EN280:2013, such as foot pedals. A secondary guard is a safety system which has been fitted to a self propelled boom in addition to these standards. The two main types, physical barriers and pressure sensing devices, are designed to further prevent the risk of entrapment whilst operating self propelled booms. Many manufacturers are now fitting secondary guards as standard on their machines.
