Scissor Lift Training

Trust EWP Silvercard for Scissor Lift Training Across New Zealand

Before using a scissor lift on your worksite, make sure that the employees who will be operating that equipment have gone through the necessary scissor lift training. At EWP Silvercard, we can help. For 20 years, our program has been helping businesses and their employees be safer and smarter in regard to elevated work platforms (EWPs). We provide the equipment training, safety best practices and regulatory awareness necessary to turn your team members into master scissor lift operators.

Benefits of Our Scissor Lift Courses

A scissor lift course with EWP Silvercard will result in many powerful and important outcomes. These benefits include:

  • Ability to assess the worksite: Scissor lifts and EWP equipment don’t exist or operate in a vacuum. The specific characteristics of a worksite can and do affect operation. As part of our courses, your employees will learn how to assess the work site before operating a scissor lift.
  • Equipment preparation: Preparing the scissor lift for implementation is half the battle for worksite safety. We help students master the preparation steps of EWP use, to pave the way for safer projects using this equipment.
  • Knowledge of EWP theory: The majority of the time in our scissor lift courses is devoted to practical aspects such as equipment preparation and operation. However, there is also a substantial portion of the course that focuses on relevant EWP theory, including legislative requirements and safety best practices.

All these outcomes are a match with New Zealand Qualifications Authority unit standards.
