Aerial Lift Training
In Aerial Lift Training, you will develop skills and attitudes to enable you to operate self-propelled aerial work platforms safely and effectively. Aerial Lift Training objectives are to develop the skills and attitudes that will enable you to operate self-propelled aerial work platforms more efficiently, in a safe and accident-free manner. Participants will understand a number of topics around Aerial Lifts such as the employee/supervisor rights & responsibilities, associated fines, competency, inspections, and how to identify specific health and safety hazards associated with operating Man-lifts.
Aerial Lift Training Outline (2.5 hours per lift*):
- Overview the sections of OHS Act, CSA standards and other regulations
- Review of “fall arrest” training and equipment
- Equipment inspection and work area assessment requirements
- Identify site-specific risks
- Learn the controls for the safe operation of a lift
- Understand safety decals, load capacities, and equipment requirements
- Key factors for the safe operation of Power Elevated Mobile Platforms
Aerial Lift Training Practical Outline (about 10 minutes per person):
- Complete an inspection of the aerial platform
- Inspect and put on “fall arrest” equipment. Note: it is required for participants to have their fall arrest or working at heights training prior to taking the aerial lift practical evaluations.
- How to drive, position, and raise the aerial platform
- Operating skills evaluation
- Each participant will engage in approximately 10 minutes of practical testing. New operators may take longer. We recommend new operators have at least 8 hours of practical experience guided and documented by a competent supervisor prior to attending. This will increase your chances of passing the evaluation.
