Mobile Elevating Work Platform Training "Scissor Lift and Boom" Summary:

Every elevated work platform operator must be trained in the safe operation and limitations of each piece of equipment based on provincial and federal health and safety legislation. Training will teach operators to move and position elevating platforms based on capacity and the stability zone without causing incidents. A trained operator can reduce customer delays and indirect costs to your business. To prevent damaged goods, building damage or injuries to the operator or other workers, training is essential.

Our course includes training on numerous mobile elevating work platforms including scissor lifts, articulating boom and straight boom type devices.

We provide elevated lifting device operators with the needed theory training, coaching, practical skills evaluation and refresher training.

Hot Zone holds monthly public mobile elevated work platform training in Cambridge, Ontario. Alternatively, we can provide training on-site for your team. Contact us today to find out more.
