EWPA Registered Inspector Programme
The EWPA Registered Inspector Program is a national initiative whereby potential inspectors are formally assessed, verified and moderated to ensure they possess the level of experience and expertise required to undertake 6 month and/or major inspections of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms as stated in Australian Standard AS2550.10. The Standard & New Zealand EWP Best Practice Guidelines for MEWP state that only a Competent Person can carry out 6 month and/or major inspections.
"Our mission is to promote and support best and safe practices in the use and maintenance of EWP"
The EWPA Registered Inspector Programme is the best method to educate, improve compliance and consistency of EWP maintenance within New Zealand. The cost of major inspections of EWP is significant, the need to have this maintenance undertaken correctly is essential. The Registered Inspector Programme compels inspectors to follow the EWP Best Practice Guidelines and relevant industry standards and therefore gives EWP owners, operators greater certainty of equipment compliance and safety.
