Course Overview

In accordance with the WHS Act and Regulations 2011 under Primary Duty of Care, a PCBU must provide information, training, instruction or supervision that is necessary to protect all persons from risks to their health and safety arising from work carried out as part of the conduct of the business or undertaking.  Depending on which type of ewp equipment you receive training on, a Yellow Card can provide ‘evidence of training’ for the following equipment: Boom Lift (under 11m), Scissor Lift, Vertical Lift, Trailer Lift or Truck Mount. This accredited course structure is both specific to your particular model of equipment and to Elevating Work Platforms in general.

We can also provide this service at your site for groups of 6-8 people if you have your own appropriate EWP equipment and resources. We do not charge any call out fees.
