New EWP course available now

Pinnacle Safety and Training has further expanded its commitment to keeping people safe by announcing the launch of a new training program in Elevating Work Platforms (EWP).

The program, which will initially be rolled out at Pinnacle’s Brisbane training facility, will provide participants with the skills to operate boom-type elevating work platforms with a boom length of 11 metres or more.

The course will be delivered over three days, with two days dedicated to the formal and informal training components of this course. The third day is for the Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S) mandated assessment items.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a Statement of Attainment from Pinnacle, along with an assessment summary (AS1) from the accredited WH&S assessor. In addition to this, successful participants will have the required formal logbook training and assessment results to be eligible to apply for a High Risk Work (HRW) License in the relevant class.

Paul Botwright, Director of Pinnacle Safety and Training, said the introduction of the new course demonstrates Pinnacle’s commitment to the market and understanding of current industry requirements.

“At Pinnacle, we take pride in keeping abreast of the latest safety licencing, training and assessment and employment trends,” Paul said.

“As one of Australia’s largest work at heights training organisations, we’re all too aware that in many situations, the use of an elevating work platform is a preferred work method over employing a harness-based fall-prevention system.”

“We’ve developed our EWP training program to meet the growing needs of the construction and resources industry in line with the latest national licencing requirements.”

“Our new EWP course also dovetails nicely into our extremely popular Work Safely at Heights course, and workers who do both will be armed with the knowledge and skills to be able to undertake a wide range of work at heights while employing various systems to ensure safety.”

“Keeping people safe is our number one priority and drives everything we do.”

“We intend to continue to expand the breadth and depth of our training offering, with more courses due to be released soon.”

“Keep an eye on our website for the latest news.” Paul said.
