What does MEWP mean?

MEWP stands for ‘Mobile Elevating Work Platform’ and is our preferred acronym. Collectively this and a few others are used describe a piece of powered equipment that elevates a person/people to work safely at height. Other common names you might hear these machines referred to are EWP’s (Elevated Working Platform), AWP’s (Aerial Working Platforms) and ‘Cherry Picker’

What are MEWPs used for?

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPS) are ideal for accessing jobs at height or perhaps that require over-reaching something below the job, so basically for accessing hard to reach and otherwise inaccessible areas. The extending articulated arm can carry one or two workers with tools as a safe platform to work from.

Do I need training to operate a MEWP?

It is important that operators are competent and should have received appropriate training for using a MEWP. Whilst it is possible to hire and use a machine without proof of formal training, we always strongly recommend the user received proper training from a recognised supplier, not least because of the extended H&S considerations when working at height. Here is a link to a recommended training facility https://www.ipaf.org/en/ipaf-training

Is there a legal requirement for MEWPs to be inspected?

Under UK law, MEWPs must receive a LOLER.  Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), must be thoroughly examined at least every six months by a competent person. Needless to say all our machines are fully certified.

How much does it cost to hire an MEWP?

We hire our MEWPs on a daily or weekly hire rate and the cost depends on which machine you hire and the duration you need it for. Please refer to the relevant machine pages for specific costs.

How do I decide which machine I need?

However, your main considerations will be - the height you need to access combined with the out-reach you need to access, which fuel type i.e. diesel or electric (or indoor work) and the terrain of both the working area and route to/from.

Do I need other supplementary equipment when I hire from you?
