Date of publication:
Series code:

This leaflet describes the safe working practices to be followed when using a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) for tree work. It is applicable when a risk assessment has determined that a MEWP, rather than climbing from ground level, is the appropriate access method for the work.

Use the leaflet alongside the manufacturer's handbook as part of your risk assessment to help identify the controls to put in place when using a MEWP for tree work.
