Elevated Work Platform (EWP) Courses

At Professional Training Solutions, we provide 3 EWP courses suitable for a range of different industries and job requirements.

An Elevating work platform (EWP) is the term used to describe all configurations of EWPs being self-propelled, trailer mounted (towable) or truck mounted. This term is not used when the work platform is an attachment such as a “personnel basket” or “cage” fitted to plant such as a forklift.

According to the Australian Standards:

 Elevating Work Platform – AS2550.10; 1.3.7

A mobile machine (device) that is intended to move persons, tools and material to working positions and consists of at least a work platform with controls, an extending structure and a chassis.

There are many variations of EWP but they can be placed in one of two categories: Boom type or Scissor type.
