What Is Elevating Work Platforms Training?
The Elevating Work Platforms program first covers basic aspects of operating these vehicles in a safe manner, while also clearly establishing the extent to which the operator, employer, and manufacturer are individually responsible for its proper functioning. Following this, employees are acquainted with a comprehensive list of potential hazards when operating boom-supported platforms.
The students are then given actionable advice in order to minimize and/or completely eliminate the risks. Finally, the program teaches workers how to perform a pre-operation inspection to ensure that both the vehicle and the platform are in working order.
Please note that this course requires hands-on practical evaluation. To complete this part of the training you will need to be evaluated by a certified trainer as explained in the course.
Who Needs Elevating Work Platforms Training?

The program is addressed both to current employees, as well as to future candidates.
In the following industries, Elevating Work Platforms safety training is usually mandated:
- Energy & Electricity.
- Logistics (Shipping and Warehousing).
Who Is Responsible for Elevating Work Platforms Training?
As with any safety certification, the Canadian OHS requires the employer to guarantee a safe working environment for the people they hire. Consequently, they are also the ones who must purchase and implement adequate Elevating Work Platforms training for their workers.
Meanwhile, the obligation of the latter is to successfully undergo and complete the training program, as well as to apply what they have learned. Conversely, some job candidates choose to acquire and complete the training program independently in order to improve their CV.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete the Elevating Work Platforms training course, workers must prove that they can inspect a boom-supported platform before use, operate it in a safe manner, and take the necessary precautions to ensure they avoid any hazards when working with or around it.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Given the high risk of fatality due to collapse, tip over, falls, or electrocutions, while using an elevating work platform, this safety course should be completed by employees on a yearly basis. This ensures that people working with or around elevated work platforms are knowledgeable of the risks associated with these vehicles and capable of operating them properly. The standard expiration date is 3 years.
