The use of powered elevating work platforms is common in our industry. While there have been few accidents with powered elevating work platforms, when accidents do happen they can involve severe injuries and extensive damage. Only people trained in the safe use of these work platforms are authorized to operate these devices. Therefore, this course has been introduced to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills required to safely operate aerial lifts.
