Mobile elevating work platforms -- Design, calculations, safety requirements and test methods relative to special features -- Part 3: MEWPs for orchard operations

Abstract

ISO 16653:2011 specifies the design, calculations, safety requirements and test methods relevant to mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) suitable for orchard operations. It is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 16368, whose requirements it modifies, supplements or confirms.

ISO 16653:2011 specifies the structural design calculations and stability criteria, construction, safety examinations and tests to be carried out before a MEWP to be used in orchard operations is first put into service. It identifies the hazards arising from the use of MEWPs in orchard operations and describes methods for the elimination or reduction of those hazards.

It is applicable to single-person boom-type MEWPs, controlled from the platform and used to move a person to working positions for picking fruit and maintaining trees and trellis vines in an orchard.
