Prior to the introduction of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in the 1970s, construction industry professionals relied almost exclusively on ladders and scaffolding to access major work at height projects. In the decades since their introduction, MEWPs have become increasingly common, but the question still surfaces: is a MEWP or scaffolding the right choice for my jobsite?
