RTITB MEWP Boom Lift - Cherry Picker

Description

MEWP's are widely used in the workplace and are replacing ladders and tower scaffolds as the preferred method of access. However operators are often asked to use these machines without being given any formal training, as a result, they are not aware of the safety precautions required or of the individual capabilities of the MEWP itself. MEWPs can present a high risk of destabilising if operated incorrectly, a risk dramatically reduced by professional training in the use of MEWPs.
