MEWPs Familiarisation

Before being authorised to operate a particular make or model of MEWP, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all operators are trained and given adequate time to undertake familiarisation on the use of the machine with a competent person. Familiarisation should follow on from basic training and should cover:

■   Manufacturer’s instructions and warning
■   Features of the specific model of MEWP
■   The control functions particular to the specific model of MEWP
■   The function of each safety device
■   The Emergency lowering procedures

All of the above information can be found in the operators manual which should be supplied with the machine.

All familiarisations should be recorded.
