MEWP – Mobile Elevated Work Platforms

Application:

Working at height is considered dangerous, many deaths occur each year as a result of falls and crushing accidents.  The industry recognise that improvements need to be made to the safety systems which are installed on the elevated platform.  This installation focuses specifically on crushing which can occur when the operator accidentally backs into steel structures and beams. This would leave the operator pushed over the controls, possibly activating the controls,  continuing backwards crushing the operator in to the control panel. A safety feature was required to prevent this crushing potential.
