TLILIC0005 - Licence To Operate A Boom-Type EWP greater than 11m


Elevated Boom-Lift Training in Sydney

Workers must often perform construction and maintenance work on infrastructure at heights. A boom-lift is infinitely safer and more convenient than a ladder. Still, a large part of that safety depends on the skills and knowledge of the boom-lift operator. HRTA provides structured boom-lift training in Sydney, emphasising comprehensive knowledge to manage most situations safely.

These boom-type elevating work platforms include a telescoping mechanism, hinged or articulated device, or any combination to support a platform. The purpose of the scaffold is to raise personnel, equipment, and materials.
