Scissor/Vertical Lifts and Truck/Trailer mounted EWP's
No Licence is required for boom type EWP operation with a boom length of 10.99m or less.
To confuse matters, Scissor Lifts are not defined as a boom type EWP (ie does not have the capacity to slew).
However, the WHS ACT 2012 states that the PCBU must ensure the operator receives adequate information, training, instruction
and supervision by a competent person in the safe use of any mobile plant in a workplace.
A Licence to Operate a Boom Type EWP (11m or more boom length) TLILIC2005 does not technically cover you for Scissor Lift or Vertical Mast Lift operation as they are usually somewhat different in function and rescue control operation.
HRW Solutions offers nationally recognised training in Scissor Lifts, Vertical Mast Lifts or Trailer/Truck Mounted EWP's dependent on your specific requirements.
