Mobile elevating work platforms -- Design, calculations, safety requirements and test methods relative to special features -- Part 2: MEWPs with non-conductive (insulating) components

ISO 16653-2:2009 specifies the design, calculations, safety requirements and test methods for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) with non‑conductive (insulating) components. It is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 16368.

It is applicable to all types and sizes of MEWPs with non-conductive (insulating) components, including dielectric components designed and tested to meet the specific electrical properties consistent with the manufacturer's identification plate. This equipment is intended to move persons, tools and equipment to working positions where they can carry out work from a work platform located above a non-conductive boom section.

ISO 16653-2:2009 covers structural design calculations and application of stability criteria, construction, safety examinations and tests done before MEWPs with non-conductive (insulating) components are first put into service. It identifies the hazards arising from the use of MEWPs with non-conductive (insulating) components and describes methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards.

It is not applicable to MEWPs designed for live working (see IEC 61057).
