WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ELEVATED WORK PLATFORMS (EWP) AND WORKING AT HEIGHTS (WAH)?

The skills and knowledge required to operate an elevated work platform are different to learning to perform work at varying heights in the workplace.

Elevated work platforms, such as operating scissor lifts and mobile boom type elevated work platforms, require training that prepares the worker to operate the machinery. KI Training and Assessing offer Elevated Work Platform training courses that teach workers how to safely operate elevated work platforms.

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.

HOW LONG IS WORKING AT HEIGHTS VALID FOR?

Work at Heights Safely licence does not have an expiry date. When to update or refresh your WAH training mainly depends on the site procedures involved and your employer’s policies. The currency period most employers require for this unit of competency is about 2 years. If you’d like to update your training, skills and knowledge, KI Training and Assessing offer Working At Heights Refresher Courses.
