    This Standard specifies the requirements for the safe use of mobile elevating work platforms, herein referred to as MEWPs. It covers MEWPs of the following three types:(a) Type 1 MEWP for which travelling is only allowed with the MEWP in its stowed position. (b) Type 2 MEWP for which travelling with work platform in elevated travel position is controlled from a point on the chassis.(c) Type 3 MEWP for which travelling with work platform in elevated travel position is controlled from a point on the work platform.NOTE: Types 2 and 3 can be combinedThis Standard is complementary to AS 2550.1, but the requirements given herein take precedence over the corresponding requirements of AS 2550.1.It does not cover the specific requirements for the use of MEWPs for work in proximity to live electrical equipment and within the no-go zone specified in Clause 5.8 or other specific requirements of the supply authorities in the State or Territory of use. All other requirements given herein apply.
