A Guide to the use of MEWPs in Arboriculture

This Guide provides practical guidance on the safe use of MEWPs in arboriculture. Its authors come from a wide range of backgrounds within practical arboriculture, the MEWP industry, HSE and other safety professionals.

“This Guide sets out systems and techniques that can be considered as good practice for the use of MEWPs in arboriculture and helps anyone in the business to meet their legal obligations”. Dr Roger Nourish, Head of the Agriculture and Food Section, HSE.

©2008 Paperback 74 pp.

Please Note: The Arboricultural Association is developing a suite of five new technical guides covering arboricultural work at height, including a new guide entitled ‘Use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms in tree work’. It is expected that this will be published in the autumn of 2020. While the information in the current publication is still technically accurate, purchasers should be aware that an updated Technical Guide will soon be available.
