Interference effects using radio transmitters in MEWPs

NECA Safety would like to advise members about the risks involved with using radio transmitters in MEWPs.

The Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia have released an Information Sheet on this topic, following an incident where placing a UHF radio transmitter on top of the MEWP control panel resulted in interference between the transmitter and the joystick and also affected the operation of some sensors on the MEWP.
