MEWP Inspection Checklist
The Good to Go Safety Check Book is an innovative tool for workplace equipment. It allows workers to carry out pre-use checks and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. These safety checklists are designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
“A programme of daily visual checks, regular inspections and servicing schedules should be established in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and the risks associated with each Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP). Operators should be encouraged to report defects or problems. Reported problems should be put right quickly and the MEWP taken out of service if the item is safety critical. The MEWP must be thoroughly examined at least every six months by a competent person or in accordance with an examination scheme drawn up by such a competent person.” Ref: HSE Guidance
Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to MEWP components and mechanical checks to be completed before the digger is used. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed checklists are retained in the book for management records. The book also includes useful guidance notes to remind operatives what to look for during their inspection.
