Aerial Lift Training objectives are to develop the skills and attitudes that will enable you to operate self-propelled aerial work platforms more efficiently, in a safe and accident-free manner. Participants will understand a number of topics around Aerial Lifts such as the employee/supervisor rights & responsibilities, associated fines, competency, inspections, and how to identify specific health and safety hazards associated with operating Man-lifts.

Aerial Lift Training Theory Outline (2.5 hours per lift*):

  • Review related sections of the OHS Act, CSA standards, and regulations
  • Complete review of “fall arrest” required, and recommended
  • Pre-shift equipment inspection and work area survey requirements
  • Review site-specific hazards, and controls for safe operation of a man-lift
  • Review safety decals, load capabilities, and specific equipment requirements
  • Key elements for safe operation of “Power Elevated Mobile Platforms”


Aerial Lift Training Practical Outline (about 10 minutes per person):

  • Complete a pre – use inspection of the aerial platform
  • Correctly put on and inspect “fall arrest” equipment (recommended to also take Fall Arrest training)
  • Drive, position, and elevate the aerial platform
  • Be evaluated on operating skills
  • Practical testing takes approximately 10 minutes per person. Practical testing may take longer for new operators. We recommend prior to the training that new operators have a competent supervisor observe them with documented operation time for a minimum of 8 hours. This increases their chances of passing the practical evaluation.
