Guidelines for Safe Transportation of Your Genie® MEWP

Guidelines for Safe Transportation of Your Genie® MEWP

Nov 02, 2021


As use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) across different industries and applications continues to grow, understanding how to safely load and transport your Genie® MEWP is essential for safety, as well as to protect your investment.

While models and equipment types have their own set of requirements and procedures, a few important rules apply across models and equipment types:

Read Operator’s Manual. It will provide step-by-step instructions to ensure that you are able to load your MEWP safely and efficiently.

Park your transport vehicle
 on a firm surface and secure it to prevent it from rolling.

Prepare your MEWP to be loaded by ensuring that platforms, jibs, booms and axles are fully lowered and/or retracted and in transport position, as described in your Genie MEWP’s operator’s manual.

Watch out for hazards! 
This includes tip-over hazards during loading and transport, and collision hazards resulting from limited sight distance and/or blind spots and overhead hazards such as power lines.

Tie down all items on the trailer/transport vehicle, as well as ensure your Genie MEWP is properly secured with tie-down chains or straps sufficient to withstand the machine’s weight.

Only qualified aerial lift operators should move the machine on or off the truck.
