TERMINOLOGY & CATEGORIES

Aerial work platforms (AWP) will now be referred to as mobile elevated work platforms (MEWP).  MEWPs will be seperated into 2 groups. 

  • Group A will consist of MEWPs whose platform stays within it's tipping lines. An example of a Group A would be a low-level access Hy-Brid Lift. 
  • Group B MEWPs are anything that is not Group A such as a boom lift whose platform extends past it's tip lines. 

Mewps will further be categorized into types. 

  • Type 1 will be MEWPs for which traveling is allowed only when in the stowed position. 
  • Type 2 will be MEWPs for which traveling with the work platform in the elevated position is controlled from a point on the chassis.
  • Type 3 will be MEWPs for which traveling with the work platform in the elevated position is controlled from a point on the work platform.

Type 2 and Type 3 can be combined.
