Benefits of having an EWP Licence

ewp licence

As it’s getting harder and harder for those interested in breaking into construction to find work in this industry, securing an elevated work platform (EWP) licence can often be the point of difference for job seekers wanting to secure a role over the competition.

Why an EWP license is so valuable in construction

Elevated work platforms are very common on construction sites to support equipment, materials and workers when working at heights. Depending on the construction project, these can range from self-propelled scissor lifts and boom lifts through to truck or trailer mounted EWPs.

It’s critical for the safety of everyone onsite for elevated work platforms to be operated by someone who is fully licensed, so they have the knowledge and experience to safely navigate different terrains and conditions, such as limited access areas.

Avoid accidents onsite with EWP training and licensing

Deaths in construction have been recorded from improper operation of EWP platforms, commonly believed to have resulted from a lack of training. By undergoing EWP training and licensing through a nationally recognised training provider like Elevated Training, it can help stop further tragedies occurring on construction sites.

What’s involved with EWP training and licensing

EWP training and licensing teaches individuals how to safely operate electrical, hydraulic and mechanical elevated work platforms in a range of environments and conditions. The training includes supporting personnel, equipment and materials while operating EWPs, so individuals become competent in a broad scope of situations. From relocation and set-up through to onsite operations and shutting down of equipment, EWP training and licensing is very comprehensive.
