Course Description

Participants must have a valid Fall Protection certificate in order to complete this training.

Mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs) are mechanical devices that provide temporary access for people or equipment to inaccessible areas, usually at height.
This course focuses on Group B work platforms, more commonly known as Boom lifts.
Boom lifts are generally used for temporary access purposes such as maintenance and construction work, distinguishing them from other access equipment such as elevators or scaffolding.
Boom lifts have become one of the most utilized pieces of equipment in multiple industries. Hazards can include falls, contact with live wires, tipping and contact with structures resulting in worker injury. For these reasons, our training program consists of theory and practical assessments using Boom lifts.
This course teaches operators about hazards, safe operation, preventive maintenance and legislative requirement associated with Boom lift use.
This 4-hour MEWP (Boom lift) course is designed to foster and develop a professional, willing and cooperative attitude towards safe equipment operation.
