Mobile Elevating Work Platform (Scissor lift, Boom lift)

MOBILE ELEVATING WORK PLATFORMS - Scissor Lift (3A) and Boom Lift (3B) Certification

Many workplace accidents or injuries with aerial work platform equipment as well as damage to machines occurs when operators and Scissor Lift Training (3A) on various Makes/Modelssupervisors overlook important safety precautions, procedures, or don't fully understand how to use the equipment as designed. Making safety a top priority in our facilities and on the job includes the most up-to-date and effective training available. The use of elevating work platforms may put workers at risk when the equipment is not adequately selected, used, maintained or stored, or when manufacturer’s instructions are not followed and equipment limitations are not respected.

There are many factors to consider for the safe use of elevating work platforms on construction projects and in industrial settings and our MEWP Course confidently prepares workers and supervisors to the hazards and considerations when elevated work platforms are being used on the job.

Included in this course are safe operating reviews and training for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms such as Scissor Lift (Category 3A) and Self Propelled Boom such as a 'zoom boom' and Genie Lift (Category 3B). Other equipment available upon request.
