EWP training is about teaching the regulations, guidelines as well as code of practice for accessing and operating elevated working platforms safely. The training also covers practical exercises that apply and test a trainee's knowledge of the risks and operational skills required when operating elevated working platforms. The aim of training is to prove knowledge of legislative requirements on the usage of EWPs, hazard management (identification, assessment and controlling common hazards), emergency response, and knowledge of different types of elevated working platforms and their applications.
