The lowering of mobile elevated working platforms in an emergency
Lessons learned following a fatality on a non-London 2012 project involving a mobile elevated working platform (MEWP) resulted in an emergency drill being carried out on the Olympic Park. It was found that not enough of the workforce knew how to lower a MEWP in an emergency. Further training of operatives was recommended to mitigate this health and safety risk.
