Elevated Work Platform HIANZ Silver Card Training
Why EWP Training is so essential:
- If you’re an employer it’s your duty to ensure that your EWP Operators are adequately trained.
- Giving your team professional elevated platform training is part of taking all practicable steps to ensure employees safety whilst working at heights.
- Training increases confidence and gives awareness of possible hazards that would likely be missed prior to the training.
- Most large companies are insisting on contractors having a recognised qualification.
This is a one day course involving a combination of theory and practical applica-tion, providing the skills and knowledge of workplace and operational hazards involved with EWP use.
The Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992 states that one aspect of ensuring that employees can carry out work safely is making sure that employees have adequate knowledge, experience and training. This course ensures your com-pany is legislatively compliant, and your staff will have been made aware of the relevant Best Practices and guidelines related to EWP machinery operations.
