Course Information


MEWP’s are widely used in the workplace and are quickly replacing ladders and tower scaffolds as the preferred method of access. However, operators are often asked to use machines without being given any formal training. As a result, they are not aware of the safety precautions required or individual capabilities of the MEWP itself. If you are an employer, it is a legal requirement to ensure employees are provided with adequate training for safe operation of equipment.

It’s also worth noting that trained operators are safer operators and MEWP safety training can enhance operator productivity.

  • Scissor Lift (Mobile Vertical)
  • Self Propelled Boom (Mobile/SP Boom)
