Training, Health and Safety.

The requirement for competence requires that operators are trained and certified by a person who holds proof of competency as a trainer. Aerial Platform Hire Ltd. can offer training on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms such as Diesel and Electric Booms and Scissors lifts. Our training staff have been trained by and are registered with the Construction Industry Training Board in Great Britain. Employers who have staff trained by Aerial Platform Hire are also eligible for training grants from FAS for part of the cost provided that certain criteria are met. Various training courses are available both on site and at our premises in Mallow and Clane, catering for all categories from novice to experienced operator.

Many supervisors and managers in construction and industry have to control staff that use mobile elevating work platforms as part of their regular work. We can tailor specialist training courses to give supervisory staff the knowledge they need to ensure that mobile elevating work platforms are used productively and safely.
