Mobile Elevating Work Platforms

Make sure you and your teams are confident and well trained on using elevating work platforms

Elevating work platforms (EWP) are a standard feature on most industrial sites. It is essential that operators of EWP items are trained to use the machines safely and effectively.

Our course provides EWP operators with a combination of theory and instruction in practical use of the various platforms. We cover familiarisation with the operating environment, hazards and risk management, EWP capabilities and limits, fitness for purpose, pre- use inspections, fault reporting, start up and shut down and certification.

By completing this course you will learn the: 

  • Types of EWPs and their suitability for purpose.
  • Safety features of EWPS.
  • Legislative requirements in relation to Code of Practice and the use of EWPs.

Please note, the use of harnesses specific to these machines is included but does not cover assessment required for work at heights training.
