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) TLILIC0005 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.

                                       2 hours when added to the EWP TLILIC0005 (11m or more boom length) HRW Licence training.

Application of the Unit

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to operate an elevating work platform at any height.

This unit applies to those working in operational roles.

The work required in this unit relates to the National Standard for High Risk Work but this unit does not provide the licence. Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements that may apply to this unit can vary between states, territories and industry sectors, and must be sourced prior to applying this unit.

This unit alone does not provide sufficient skill to independently load and unload equipment. To perform this activity safely, personnel must either complete or be assisted by someone who has completed RIIHAN308F Load and Unload Plant or equivalent.




      All nationally recognised training, when a learner is deemed competent at the completion of their training, will be issued with a Statement of Attainment Competency in the unit in which they have enrolled by our partnering RTO: All High Risk Training Pty Ltd RTO #91463
