MEWPs Emergency and rescue procedure

The emergency and rescue plan should identify nominated, trained, site-based personnel who would be available to lower the work platform using the ground controls or emergency descent system, situated at the base of the machine, should the elevated operator experience difficulties.

These people should be included in the Familiarisation for the specific machines being used on site and should be given the opportunity to practice the emergency rescue procedure at regular intervals.

The plan should also include the call-out details for the service engineer or other person who is competent and authorised to lower the work platform in the event of an emergency or a machine malfunction.
