Pre-use check lists

To complete a pre-use check, firstly match the machine to the appropriate tile from the list below. Clicking the tile will link you to the necessary checks for that machine type. Pre-use checks are essential in ensuring your machine is fit for purpose and safe to use. Should you find any issues these should be directed to the MEWP hirer or machine owner.

Pre-use checks are commonly referred to as daily checks. However, the checks should be completed by any new operator prior to using the machine, not only at the start of each day.

For further information on the importance of pre-use checks / daily checks please watch our video on this in our top tips section.
