New cherry picker guidance

In recent years there have been a number of serious incidents involving mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs). In particular, serious injuries have happened when operators are trapped between a moving platform and adjacent fixed structures. New guidance has been released by the Strategic Forum for Construction which has the full support of the Health and Safety Executive.

This will be an important tool for HSE inspectors in their inspection of MEWP usage. MEWPS are an indispensible part of engineering construction workplaces, so ECIA members need to be aware of this new guidance. Click here to view it.
