EWP Training: Elevate Your Skills Today

Longreach Access Rentals

Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs) play a crucial role in many construction, maintenance, and installation projects. Operating these machines safely and efficiently requires specialised training. At Longreach Access, we provide comprehensive EWP training to equip operators with the necessary skills and knowledge, resulting in an EWP Operator Licence Yellow Card (RIHHAN301E – Operate Elevating Work Platform).

Benefits of EWP Training

EWP training enhances safety by teaching operators how to handle the equipment correctly, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. Certified EWP operators are in high demand, improving job opportunities and career prospects. Additionally, our training ensures compliance with legal regulations, helping companies maintain a safe work environment and avoid penalties.

Types of Machinery Covered

Our EWP training covers a range of machinery. Scissor lifts are ideal for vertical elevation in confined spaces. Knuckle boom lifts offer flexible movement for reaching over obstacles. Straight stick boom lifts are perfect for tasks requiring high reach. Vertical lifts provide efficiency in tight spaces, and telehandlers combine lifting and moving capabilities, making them highly versatile.

Frequently Asked Questions

I already have a High Risk Work Licence. Do I need to get a licence for operating EWPs?

Even if you already have a High Risk Work Licence, you might still need specific endorsements for operating Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs). The requirements can depend on the type of EWP and the nature of the work you plan to do.

For example, operating a boom-type EWP with a boom length of 11 metres or more usually requires an additional licence endorsement​​.

Do I need an EWP licence if I’m just going to be a passenger in an EWP?

If you are only going to be a passenger in an EWP, you do not need an EWP licence. However, the person operating the EWP must be properly trained and licensed to ensure the safety of all passengers and bystanders​​.

What is the 11-metre rule?

The 11-metre rule refers to the requirement for a High Risk Work Licence for operating any boom-type EWP with a boom length of 11 metres or more. This rule ensures that operators are properly trained and certified to handle the additional risks associated with larger and more complex equipment​.

Do I need a licence if I’m operating a truck-mounted boom lift?

Yes, operating a truck-mounted boom lift with a boom length of 11 metres or more requires a High Risk Work Licence. This requirement is consistent with other boom-type EWPs, emphasising the need for proper training and certification to ensure safe operation​.

I have one of the old Yellow Cards. Is it still valid, or do I need reaccreditation?

If you have an old Yellow Card, it might still be valid; however, it is advisable to check for any updates or changes in industry standards. Recent changes in EWP training regulations may require reaccreditation to ensure compliance with current safety standards and practices​​.
