Benefits of Elevated Work Platform Training Courses across New Zealand

EWP operator compliance programs aren’t just for show; when your employees complete the training program, you’ll reap the following benefits:

  • Safety – Safety is at the heart of any equipment certification program. We recognise that there are several safe methods of operation that your employees should know. These methods vary depending on the lift used, so ensure that they receive the training necessary for the machinery at your work site.
  • Efficiency – Everyone gets better at the work they do through experience, but without a guiding hand, that can be a long and expensive road. The Silvercard certification programs speed up the process by teaching core skills that improve workmanship and operator effectiveness.
  • Compliance – As industry experts, HIANZ trainers are knowledgeable and authorised to provide all necessary certification for your team to use EWPs under any circumstance. Prevent legal difficulties and liability complications with our clear, effective training program.
