Due to the dangerous nature of working on MEWP, there are many regulations which surround MEWP work. The Work at Height Regulations 2005, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), to name just a few.
Following these regulations, UK law requires that all employees using MEWP must have the appropriate training to do so. Responsibility for ensuring that adequate MEWP training has been completed is down to the employer. Failure to abide by the regulations and the employer will be held accountable. Consequences for not ensuring that your employees have MEWP training can be severe, resulting in heavy fines or even jail time. Therefore, it is crucial that your business undertakes MEWP training immediately.
