Duration 8 hrs (2 days)
This program encompasses eight hours of training over two days. Day one comprises six hours of an in-class session, followed on another day with approximately two hours of practicum per participant (time depending on the operator experience). The practicum serves as a hands-on training tool for new operators, and an evaluation for experienced ones. Participants will learn about different types of elevating work platforms and discuss their functions, safety features, characteristics, components and stability. Participants will also discuss applicable legislation and standards. Just as important, program participants will gain an understanding of associated health and safety hazards and their control.
