Find out what this inspection is about, what is inspected, and what to do about any problems you find by reading us to the end.

  1. What is the annual MEWP inspection?

In order to make sure that everything is in order with the MEWP, it is necessary to have an annual inspection. Basically, it is a routine procedure, which serves to ensure the safety of use of the equipment.

It is the responsibility of the owners to ensure that the annual MEWP inspection is carried out no later than thirteen months from the date it was previously carried out. Similarly, a person qualified to inspect the make and model of the MEWP will proceed with the inspection.

  1. What is sought in said inspection?

Items included in the MEWP annual inspection are all those that were included in a previous inspection, as well as those specified by the manufacturer (usually published in brand bulletins).

Also, it is vitally important that you ensure that the MEWP is registered with the manufacturer, and that all open safety related bulletins are addressed as part of the inspection.

Without all relevant elements having been addressed, and given the go-ahead, the MEWP cannot be returned to service.

  1. Why should inspection be governed?

The standards for the annual MEWP inspection are generally published in the most current ANSI standard at the time. These will serve to indicate how, and who, can carry out the procedure.

What is given freedom, within ANSI standards, is that the owner is tasked with determining if the mechanic of their choice is qualified to carry out the pertinent procedures within the inspection.

However, ANSI standards are never negotiated, since these are the ones that work when it comes to reducing security risk, and avoiding unplanned downtime for the equipment.
