This is a discussion based certification training program that reviews the operation of elevating work platforms including scissor lifts, zoom-boom lifts and articulating lifts. Competent operators must know not only how to operate the particular class of Elevating Work Platforms to which they will be operating, but also be aware of the hazards associated; they must be able to operate the equipment in a manner that protects both their own safety and the safety of others in the workplace. Expect the theory elements of this training session to last about 6 hours, then if the equipment is available, we will conduct operator practical evaluations.
Every participant will go through a practical evaluation after training on the equipment they are likely to be using. These evaluations are a test of the workers’ familiarity and experience level of the equipment.
If your workers are attending one of our training centers, we have a variety of elevated work platforms on site that they can use for their practical evaluations. You can do evaluations on multiple pieces of equipment.
Participants will receive training in the following elements:
Hazards—People, Equipment, Material, and Environment
Workplace Pre-Use Inspections
Characteristics of Scissor Lifts and Vertical Mast Lifts
Characteristics of Articulating and Telescopic Boom Lifts
Equipment Inspections and Operational Stability
