EWP OPERATOR TRAINING

"Since the release of the Best Practice Guidelines for MEWP in August 2014, the EWPA has fielded numerous inquiries regarding EWP Operator Training, most questions relate to what the requirements are for such training. The short answer to this question is that the Health and Safety Act informs you that you must train your staff on the equipment they are using. So, even though licensing is not mandatory in New Zealand, machinery operator training most certainly is."
