MEWPs for Managers

Companies that use MEWPs need to know what their management responsibilities are – and what their legal responsibilities are.

The course covers what managers need to know about the safe use of MEWPs on site, from planning the job and conducting a risk assessment, to selecting the right equipment and mitigating all possible risks.

Under UK health and safety legislation, specifically, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Work at Height Regulations 2005, employers must train all employees who plan, supervise and manage work at height and the use of equipment for such work.

Course objectives:

Class room only – No practical
