If you or your staff are working at height, MEWP training is required. CPH can provide you with the best quality MEWP operator training available on the market. Based in Charleville and Cork while covering all of Munster, instantly and at very competitive rates.

We will ensure the MEWP training provided is exactly what YOU require, and that YOU will be compliant with legislation, along with your insurer’s requirements. The training will be carried out to the relevant standard and in accordance with HSA (Health & Safety Authority) guidelines in particular The Construction Regulations 2013 and The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Applications) Regulations 2007. See for more.

The trainee will gain a MEWP licence on successful completion. MEWP’s are widely used in the workplace and are replacing ladders and tower scaffolds as the preferred method of access. However operators are often asked to use these machines without being given any formal training, and as a result, they are not aware of the safety precautions required, the legal inspection and certification requirements or of the individual capabilities of the MEWP itself. Apart from the obvious human cost of accidents, increased safety awareness brings real commercial benefits. Far from hindering operators in their work, it can and does, enhance productivity. Operators, whose training and experience make them safe, anticipate potential difficulties and problems on the task ahead of them just as they foresee the hazards and dangers that could result in an accident.
