MEWP – Mobile Elevated Work Platforms

Application:

Working at height can be dangerous, with many deaths occuring each year as a result of falls and crushing accidents.  The industry recognise that improvements need to be made to elevated platform safety systems.

This MEWP installation focused specifically on preventing the 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 and being crushed into the control panel.
