The safe management of racking MEWPs on site – Part 2
I recently had the opportunity to observe the use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) during a large racking installation and alteration project in Chesterfield. My visit prompted me to develop a step-by-step guide on how to select a MEWP for use in the racking industry.

Racking up safety standards on site – Part 1
I recently had the opportunity to observe the use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) during a large racking installation and alteration project in Chesterfield. My visit prompted me to develop a step-by-step guide on selecting and using MEWPs in the racking industry. In the interests of knowledge sharing and boosting safety standards, I thought it may be helpful to share my thoughts in the form of two blogs. This blog focuses on how to select the right MEWP for your job. The second blog in the series covers the correct use of MEWPs. I hope you find them both useful.
