Vancouver Manlift Ticket - The Manlifts and Elevated Platforms course provides training on the regulations, rules and proper application of safe operating procedures and work practices involved in daily activities for individuals who work with this machine. The program has been designed for people who are actively involved in these activities or those who have a basic understanding of this equipment.
Aerial platforms and manlifts have become integral and common equipment in industrial settings over the past few decades. These machinery provide an easy way to lift employees close to what has to be performed on a stable platform apparatus, allowing employees to carry out tasks with greater safety and comfort rather than being perched on top of scaffolding or ladders.
The manlift is similar to other industrial devices in that they are safe if utilized correctly. As they lift workers above floor or ground level, accidents could easily occur and this might cause serious death or injuries for both the operators of the manlift as well as any passerby who might not be lucky enough to be standing beneath.
Manlifts come in various kinds. Most fit into 1 or 2 categories: the scissor lift, which is capable of moving upward and downward and the articulating boom lift, that can move both horizontally and vertically.
