Training for operators and maintainers of lifting equipment

Moving platforms and scissor lifts are popular equipment for moving people at height, not only on construction sites, but also during repair or maintenance work. They are robust and safe.

  • learning about legislation and regulations,
  • construction of lifts and platforms,
  • the technical knowledge associated with these devices,
  • the duties and powers of the conservator,
  • health and safety rules,
  • familiarisation with technical documentation and operation.

Both machine control and maintenance training are completed by an examination before a board that is appointed by the Office of Technical Inspection.
