MEWP for Managers

MEWP for Managers

IPAF’s MEWP for Managers training course covers what managers need to know for safe and effective use of MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Work Platforms) on site, including planning the job, conducting a risk assessment, selecting the right equipment for optimum cost-efficiency and mitigating all possible risks.


Companies that use MEWPs need to know what their responsibilities are and how to ensure the most effective use of MEWPs. 

  • Do you know what your obligations are?
  • Have you selected the right machine for the job at hand?
  • Who is operating MEWPs on your site and have they been trained and familiarised?
  • Have you considered the potential hazards and taken preventive measures?

This training course will help you answer these questions and prepare you to safely and effectively manage MEWPs on site.


Employers, managers, foremen, supervisors and Health & Safety managers working in a broad range of industries such as construction, facilities management, retail, airports and arboriculture. Anyone who is responsible for planning and overseeing the use of  MEWPs on their job site.


This course is about planning, supervising and managing the use of MEWPs, and not about operating equipment. It ends with a written test that candidates must pass. Upon successful completion of the theory test, candidates will receive an IPAF certificate. Those who hold a valid PAL card can have the MEWPs for Managers (MM) category added to their PAL Card.
