DOES EWP INCLUDE WORKING AT HEIGHTS?
Elevated Work Platform (EWP) and Working At Heights (WSH) are two different training courses requiring different skill sets.
- The Working safely at heights training course teaches workers how to perform work at varying heights in the workplace. This course is designed to instill the knowledge and precautions in the workplace where, for example, workers may be stepping up onto a ladder and therefore need to know about how to prevent falls.
- The Elevated Work Platform training course teaches workers how to safely operate elevated work platforms, such as scissor lifts. The EWP training prepares the worker to operate the machinery, which also happens to elevate to higher levels in the workplace.
