What is an EWP?

In Australia, an elevated work platform (EWP) refers to a specialized piece of equipment widely used in various industries to provide safe and efficient access to elevated work areas. There are many variations of EWPs, but they can be classified as either Boom type or Scissor type. It is designed to lift workers and their tools to otherwise hard-to-reach heights, ensuring that tasks such as maintenance, construction, repair, and inspection can be carried out effectively. EWPs are crucial for ensuring the safety of workers while maximizing productivity in a wide range of applications, including construction sites, industrial facilities, warehouses, and maintenance activities.
