The essential, one-day course for those who plan, supervise and manage the use of mobile elevating work platforms in the workplace.
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, 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.
Managers go away knowing what the legislation is, the different types of MEWPs and why it is important to select the right one - and what personal protection equipment is required.
The one day course will provide managers with answers to these need to know questions:
Do you know what your legal obligations are?
Have you selected the right machine for the job at hand?
Who is operating MEWPs on your site and have they been trained and familiarised?
Have you considered the potential hazards and taken preventive measures?
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.
