About MEWPs Inc.

Leaders in Personnel & Material Lift Safety, Excavation Safety & Compliance Training Worldwide.

MEWPs Inc. is owned and operated by Rick Staples whose work experience in the construction industry began at a young age and continues today. He began operating equipment in 1986, and training since 2008.

After the New York City tower crane collapse that killed nine in 2008, the city hired Rick to inspect more than 400 cranes and to design an inspection program and train city inspectors. 

After completion of this job, Rick launched the Educated Operator and has trained thousands of workers in the classroom and with his online system.

Rick is an approved provider, #000028 for continuing education in the state of Massachusetts. Test Prep classes are held in various cities around Massachusetts and online and have helped future operators receive their license and to stay safe in the workplace.

MEWPs Inc. was created to meet the new 2018 ANSI /SAIA standard which requires that operators, occupants & supervisors be trained in both safety/hazard avoidance & practical operation.

The online classes are offered nationally. Classroom & practical courses have started in New England states and will soon be available nation wide. The acronym, MEWPs, will be on every ANSI/SAIA-2018 standard booklet found in the manual box of every type of lift found in the USA by law.

MEWPs Inc owns and operates 20 training related websites.
