Mobile Elevating Work Platform Program
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP) are machines and devices intended for moving persons, tools and material to working positions. MEWPs consist of at least a work platform with controls, an extending structure, and a chassis. They are classified into two groups:
- Group A: MEWPs with platforms that move vertically but stay inside the tipping lines
- Group B: All other MEWPs, typically boom-type MEWPs where the platform extends past the machine’s chassis.
