What is MEWP?
If there is only one safest way to work at height, it has to be MEWP.
MEWPs or mobile elevating work platforms are commonly called as aerial work platforms. They come in various types and models including boom lifts, scissor lifts, vertical lifts, spider lifts and special MEWP models. But regardless of which one of them will be used, they are guaranteed to provide a safe and efficient solution for working at height.
Built for construction and general operations, aerial work platforms have electrical, hydraulic and mechanical components as well as multiple in-built safety systems. Such features are designed to ensure that they uphold the single-most important factor in working at height in any application: safety.
Multiple industry sectors, trades persons and workers trust MEWPs and pick them as their first choice because of the platforms’ predominant characteristics of providing safety and efficiency when working at height. In fact, MEWPs are the safest method for working at height, a claim backed by data and statistics gathered worldwide.
Other than safety, their maneuverability and efficiency are among the best selling points of MEWPs. Anyone who works at height would agree that a safe, easily moved and efficient platform is the most recommended for use.
Moreover, MEWPs can be rented and purchased and can be provided with alternative power sources, reach and height variations, options to support workers perform specific tasks, alternative platform capacities and platform sizes. Flexibility in their systems is an added value.
