Improper use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (commonly known as Aerial Work Platform) can topple the machine, injure the operator, damage equipment, and endanger others nearby. Operation of any mobile elevated work platform should always be restricted only to those who are qualified, competent, and designated as Mobile Elevated Work Platform Operators by the employer. In order to be qualified, employers should insist that operators have gone through training in the operation and the type of aerial work platform they will be operating and have successfully completed a written and practical examination.

CICB’s Mobile Elevating Work Platform course is just one-day and is similar to our bucket truck course. Both devices are used for lifting personnel into areas where they can’t reach. The main difference between bucket trucks and mobile elevating cranes is that bucket trucks can be driven to their location, while mobile elevating work platforms must be loaded on a trailer and then driven to the location.

All personnel attending this one-day program will gain significant and useful skills and will leave with a stronger understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of mobile elevated work platform operators. Specific types of platforms can be made available upon request for training and practical examinations.

You will benefit from learning about:

  • Applicable OSHA & ANSI/SIA Safety Standards
