About MEWPS, Inc.

MEWPS, Inc. is Your Training Place to Go for Lift and Heavy Equipment Compliance and Safety


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

MEWPS, Inc. is owned and operated by Rick Staples whose work experience in the construction industry began at a young age, he began operating equipment in 1986, and started training other operators and workers in 2008.

After the New York City tower crane collapse that killed nine in 2008, Rick was hired to inspect more than 400 cranes and design an inspection program, and train city inspectors.
Post 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. 
Hoisting Test Prep classes are held in various cities around Massachusetts and online and have helped future operators receive their licenses 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.
We have been training and certifying Aerial Lift workers since 2008 and have over 30 years of practical field experience as well. There are thousands of workers who trained with us on job sites all over the Northeast. Contact us today for training - we offer classroom training, online training, and your site training. 

The online classes are offered nationally. Classroom & practical courses have started in New England states and will soon be available nationwide. 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.
