MEWPs Exiting the work platform at height
MEWPs are specifically designed to lift people to a position where they can carry out work from the work platform and then return to the starting level. They are NOT intended to be used to transfer people from one level to another or for people to exit the basket at height.
Exiting the basket at height should be strictly controlled and may only be undertaken where a rigorous risk assessment carried out as part of planning the job indicates that this is the safest and most effective means of accessing a particular location.
Further information can be found in BS 8460:2005 Annex B Guidance on safe systems of work for exiting the work platform at height.
