Mobile Elevated Work Platform Self Drive Scissor Lift

Shepherds Health & Safety Ltd is fully accredited to deliver RTITB Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (or MEWP / Scissor) Training on your company premises. Since 2007, we have established ourselves as a trusted, respected MEWP training provider including training on the correct use of safety harnesses and lanyards.

Students benefit from the extensive experience of our highly qualified and RTITB Accredited MEWP instructional staff. Our instructors monitor students’ progress and development closely throughout the courses, to ensure that they reach the required Health and Safety Executive standards prior to their final tests. We teach our students to be competent and capable MEWP operators in your working environment, on your elevated work platforms. This means your operators will be trained on the very vehicles they will use every day.

As a company you can decide whether your operators are registered with the “RTITB” or receive “In Company” certification. The standard of training delivered by our instructors is the same, regardless. However, we would always recommend selecting the RTITB Option when booking, and, receive the benefits of placing operators on the National Operators Registration Scheme (NORS).

The course covers: move off, stop and steer the MEWP from the ground and platform, manoeuvre the machine from the ground and platform, capacity, stability, stabilisers, introduction to hydraulics and hydraulic controls, pre-use checks, energy replenishment, lifting function, telescoping/articulating functions, slewing function, operating over uneven ground or obstacles, plus; operating the MEWP when fitted to a road vehicle and the operators’ safety code.
