Mobile Elevated Work Platform

Course Description

This half-day course the basic knowledge of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP) required to work safely in areas where workers may be required to use MEWPs. This course is split to complete both in-class Theory as well as practical knowledge using an MEWP and meets the training standards as outlined in CSA B354.7-8.

MEWPs have become more common in the workplace, replacing scaffolding, ladders and crane raised platforms. However, there are many risks involved when using MEWPs that could result in injuring or even killing the operator, co-workers or customers, which is why safe operation is so important. Participants will understand these risks and how to evaluate protective methods for different scenarios, and proper selection and use of personal protective equipment. Participants will additionally learn how to complete a pre-operation safety inspection and learn and understand the equipment features for both Type 1 (scissor lift) and Type 2 (articulating boom) MEWPs.

Course Duration: Half Day (4+ hours)*

Certification: 3 years

Course Cost: $195/person +HST

Maximum 6 participants per session

Course Requirements

Participants must bring photo ID, their MOL learner ID for Working At Heights, and wear appropriate clothing. CSA-certified head, foot, and eye protection are additionally required. We ask that you bring your own personal protective equipment (PPE), if available, and that it is maintained and in good working order as per the manufacturer’s specifications and regulatory requirements. If you do not have the necessary PPE, you will not be able to complete the program and will be asked to reschedule when you have the proper clothing and equipment.

*Please note that the course duration varies depending on factors beyond our control (i.e. participants’ experience level, learning accommodation, etc.).
