MEWPs Thorough examination
MEWPs, and any material handling devices must be thoroughly examined at least every six months by a competent person, or at an increased frequency in accordance with an examination scheme drawn up by such a competent person.
You should ask to see and retain the report of the thorough examination for the equipment you are going to allow to be used on your site.
