MEWP’s are widely used in the Irish theatre and can replace ladders and tower scaffolds as the preferred method of access for some jobs. However operators are often asked to use these machines without being given any formal training, and as a result, they are not aware of the safety precautions required or of the individual capabilities of the MEWP itself.
