Mobile Elevating Work Platforms

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) such as Cherry Pickers, Scissor Lifts and Work Assist Vehicles (WAV) require Thorough Examination at least every 6 months under LOLER 1998 regulations. It is likely other equipment used alongside the MEWP such as harnesses and lanyards and other lifting accessories will also require inspection, this can be conducted by our engineer during the same visit reducing the amount of time and visit required.

Our competent engineers can inspect your MEWP regardless of make and model, the inspection will take a minimum of 30 minutes and could be up to 2 hours depending on your equipment’s size and complexity. Our engineer will compile their report and findings (if any) and submit to the office, the engineer will affix a sticker with the next due date and a unique barcode identifier. Within 24 hours we will issue you a Report of Thorough Examination via email and upload it to your secure online portal.

Our engineers all have IPAF Powered Access Licences (PAL) so they can drive and operate the equipment during inspection through all its abilities as prescribed in LOLER. We do not rely on your staff to assist with the inspection but may be required on rare occasions.

Regular Thorough Examination of your MEWP not only keeps you legally compliant but can identify components and/or assemblies that may affect the safety or become an issue in the future. Our detailed Report of Thorough examination will identify those areas needing to be addressed or monitored keeping your equipment and staff safe without affecting your operations.

Choosing Statutory Inspections for your MEWP Thorough Examinations:

  1. Fully trained and experienced engineers.
  2. High-quality service. We don’t subcontract our inspections, ensuring continuous high-quality service.
  3. Visual identification to show equipment is safe and when the next inspection is due.
  4. Access to your reports and certificates whenever you need them, never worry about losing a certificate again!
