An elevating work platform (EWP) is a telescoping, scissor or articulating device (or combination thereof) used to position personnel, equipment and materials at work locations. It is also used to provide a work area for personnel elevated by and working from the platform.
This course addresses a variety of EWPs (under 11 metres). It covers planning and preparation, conducting activities from an EWP, and required housekeeping tasks. This unit alone does not provide sufficient skill to independently load and unload equipment. To perform this activity safely, personnel must either complete or be assisted by someone who has completed RIIHAN308F Load and unload plant (or equivalent).
There are no entry requirements for this course. It is recommended that participants:
- Be at least 16 years of age; and
- Have at least a Year 8 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills; and
- Have access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – including steel capped safety boots, hi-vis work clothing, hard hat and safety glasses
Training for this course is delivered in a one (1) day session through a combination of face-to-face classroom and practical activity sessions. Further opportunities for practical exposure may extend this timeframe.
