How to complete an online pre-use check

To complete an online pre-use check, firstly match the machine to the appropriate machine type from their list.  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.
