In many cases, mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) provide safe and quick access to trees and a secure working platform. However, MEWPs can still topple if they are overloaded or poorly maintained, as this case study from the Health & Safety Executive shows. When selecting work equipment for work at height the Work at Height Regulations require that collective protection measures take priority over personal fall protection systems (e.g. rope and harness).
