Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) for tree work.

Overview

This leaflet describes the safe working practices to be followed when using a mobile elevating platform (MEWP) for tree work. It is applicable when risk assessment has determined that a MEWP, rather than climbing from a ground level, is the appropiate access method for the work. You can use this leaflet, along with the manufacturer's handbook, as part of the risk assessment process to help identify the controls to put in place when using a MEWP for tree work.
