Details of the Course

MEWP training in Calgary involves educating workers on the proper utilization of lifts, booms, and other construction machines. These essential devices are used to complete jobs at elevated heights while also securing worker safety in the process.

Moreover, the course also educates equipment operators in all of the best practices such as worker safety, proper upkeep, and essential routine procedures while operating the scissors lifts.
