Aerial lifting devices are becoming more prevalent in our workplaces. This course provided by Silecio trainers will provide operators with an understanding of the hazards associated with operating aerial lifting devices, the proper inspection and safe operation of the device. The course focuses on self propelled elevated work platforms and self propelled boom supported elevated work platforms. Fall Arrest use with an aerial lifting device is covered in the course.

The course is designed in accordance with CSA B354.2-01, Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms.

Now Available Practical Onsite Training

Included in this course are reviews of safe operating with Self Propelled Elevating Work Platforms (Scissor Lift) and Self Propelled Boom Supported Elevated Work Platforms (i.e Genie Boom)

In order to receive a Certificate of Competency, the participant must achieve a passing grade on the written in-class test and the practical skills evaluation. The practical skills evaluation is to be performed at the workers place of employment.

The course is broken down into the following content modules:

  • Hazard Identification
  • Warning Labels and Decals
  • Devices and Operating Controls
  • Pre-Operational Checks
  • Platform Positioning
  • Park Position
  • Question and Answer

This course covers safety protocol for employees required to operate aerial lifts. Many worksites will require practical, site-specific training (in addition to this theory training) before an employee is certified to operate machinery.
