Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) Training

HireAccess understands that one of the most important ways we can get the height safety message through to industry is via training. WorkSafe NZ have introduced Best Practice Guidelines for Mobile Elevated Work Platforms which stipulate it is the employer or principals responsibility to ensure the operator is trained on the MEWP they will be using. At HireAccess we can provide practical assessments indoors with our large indoor facility – meaning we can provide theory & practical rain, hail or shine!
“Our assessors are approved by The Skills Organisation who manage the reporting of a participants completed Unit Standards to NZQA (New Zealand Qualifications Authority). Participants are also enrolled with Skills Org.”

At HireAccess we provide 2 forms of MEWP training.

On-site Machine Specific Inductions


If your operators are trained, but need a quick refresher on the specifics of the machine they are operating, HireAccess can provide a representative to come down to site and give a comprehensive induction on the machine required. This induction is recorded and paperwork can be added to site files that support your efforts in maintaining supervision of operators to competency.

This service, if provided, is free of charge – our dedication to your safety on site.
