Calgary Aerial Lift Training

Calgary Aerial Lift Training - An aerial work platform is a mechanical access platform. This particular machinery provides access to otherwise not accessible places for people or equipment. Also referred to as an aerial device or elevating work platform, the machinery is usually used to access high areas. Construction and maintenance employees normally must utilize aerial work platforms on the job. Firefighters make use of them for emergency access.

Designed for temporary application, aerial work platforms are distinguished from elevators, that provide permanent access to high places. An aerial work platform is intended to be operated by a single individual, and could lift weights of less than one ton. Various kinds have higher load limits. There are a variety of types of aerial work platforms; for instance, there is a "cherry picker" and a "scissor lift".

Some aerial work platforms are available outfitted along with electrical outlets or compressed air connectors for power tools. For specialist jobs, such as lifting frames for window glass, an aerial work platform could come along with special equipment.

Those who want to operate an aerial lift machine have to go through training. Normally, the members of a Health & Safety Committee and their representatives are responsible for the inspection of each and every machine and work areas and are also needed to undergo training. Individuals training would learn aerial lifting device operation. They will also learn the rules which apply to the safe use of these machinery. Regulations differ from province to province, and in federally regulated worksites.

Anyone who is needed to work near or lifted by an aerial lifting machinery has to be told about potential hazards. In a general safety session, an Aerial Lift Training Video can be shown to educate all of the staff who are lifted by them or work near them.

Nearly all Aerial Lift Training Program would include modules that are focused on the following areas: Aerial Lift Devices and Operating Controls; Hazard Identification; Platform Positioning & Park Positioning and Pre Operational Checks for Aerial Lift Devices. The particular program is meant to train employees on the safe operation of self-propelled, boom supported elevated work platform and self-propelled, elevated work platform. A certificate would be provided to workers who complete the program, signed by an individual qualified to be able to confirm the successful completion of a hands-on practical exam.
