Familiarisation Video and Emergency Rescue Plan Z135

Familiarisation Video and Emergency Rescue Plan Z135

Being familiar with the make and model of MEWP you hire is critical to ensure that you can operate it safety and efficiently  - and importantly that you know what to do in the event of an emergency.

Nationwide Platforms recognises this requirement and in order to assist you in becoming familiar with your MEWP we have developed a series of familiarisation videos and emergency lowering plans. These videos and plans are designed to provide valuable visual and written information which supplement the information provided in the MEWP manufacturer’s manual.


Emergency Lowering

These short guidance documents highlight the emergency lowering control hierarchy which can be followed when rescuing an operator from height. The guidance include coloured pictures that identify the position of all the relevant functions and the guidance outlines the sequence of operation. Emergency recovery from height should be practiced before work commences as well as each time the nominated ground / rescue person is replaced.

Familiarisation Video

These videos provide a run through of the key operating characteristics of the MEWP. Each video can be watched start to finish, or by selecting a specific chapter(s) covering the operation that you require additional information or instruction on. These videos do not replace training but are aimed to supplement any familiarisation instruction provided,


All operators should be familiar with the specific machine controls and operation before work commences.
