Regina Aerial Lift Certification - Aerial Lift Certification is for people who requires an in-depth understanding of aerial lift safety. Operators and inspectors, maintenance workers, construction craftsmen and supervisors need to perform a training and certificate program. State, federal and provincial regulations require companies to be certified to be able to perform in-house aerial lift checks.
Regardless of differences in the type of work being done, all workers who perform tasks at elevated levels generally use the same means to access the required height. Aerial lifts and scissor lifts are the mechanized machines used to lift employees and equipment to elevated sites.
Bucket trucks known as Cherry Pickers are aerial platforms that feature a bucket and supported boom. The main danger to using this type of platform is usually falls, electrocutions, and tip overs. Certification makes sure that workers who make use of aerial lifts are trained correctly to safely operate the equipment. Training also makes sure that workers know how to maintain aerial work platforms based on the directions of the manufacturer.
Training comprises the following lifts: Vehicle-mounted aerial lifts, Boom-supported scissor lifts and aerial lifts. Trainees would gain knowledge of the results and causes of aerial lift accidents, and will learn safe operating procedures. They will become technically competent in the various types of aerial lifts, as well as terms and parts. From interpreting rated capacity charts to selecting the best aerial lift for the job, the certification program would provide workers with all that they must know in order to carry out their work safely.
Supervisors and inspectors who have the task to check aerial lift machines have to know how to inspect gears, booms, structural parts, operating mechanisms, control systems and functions, power plants, braking systems, attachments, shafts and pins, hydraulic, electric and pneumatic components, emergency safety devices and operator aids, and all that. Training will consist of the following: the inspector's role in reducing accidents and liability exposure; how to perform a pre-use, monthly and annual check; how to apply and interpret rules about aerial lift safety standards; how to write inspection reports; techniques and checklists; inspection procedures; applying and understanding the three levels of aerial lift inspection; following record keeping requirements; and when to remove aerial lifts from service when they are defective.
