An elevated working platform is quite simply any device used to support a platform on which workers, equipment and/or materials are elevated to perform work.
There are many different models and types of elevating work platforms including cranes, rigging and scaffolding equipment, as well as boom-type platforms.
In order to be compliant with Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws, anyone who operates plant and equipment such as an elevating work platform must be qualified to do so with an EWP licence.
EWP licences are not just for working in the resources and infrastructure Industries.
They are often called up for a number of roles including a labourer, electrician, roofer, sheetmetal worker, arborist, boilermaker, boom drive, and of course, building and civil construction workers.
An EWP license is even useful when you’re seeking work as a painter, sign or solar installer, or a window cleaner.
It goes without question that an EWP ticket is an extremely valuable certification to have when you’re seeking employment, and the training is easy and affordable.
