TRAINING + 0800 PRO HIRE

If you are getting your staff trained it is important to know which type of training is best for you. If you contracted to, or wish to work for a major construction or industrial companies then NZQA Qualifications will be your best option. If you do self accreditation for ACC, NZQA Unit standards will also be your best option.

Since the release of the Best Practice Guidelines for MEWP in August 2014, Pro Services 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 & 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.

The Best Practice Guidelines can be downloaded here, and section 6 of the guidelines state the following;

The MEWP operator training should cover at least:

  • Legal requirements
  • Hazard management – identifying, assessing and controlling hazards
  • Equipment and safety features
  • Prestart (pre-operational) inspection
  • Use of logbooks
  • Control facilities and positions
  • Limits of the machine – rated capacity, wind rating – and machine weight
  • Working near overhead power lines
  • Using a harness
  • Refuelling tools and battery charging
  • Reporting problems and incidents
  • Emergency retrieval systems
  • Emergency rescue plan.
  • Effective hazard and risk assessment in their operating location.

For the purposes of operating a MEWP, a competent person is a person who has achieved and demonstrated competency in the safe use of a particular type of MEWP.  Means of demonstrating competency is by completing an Operator Training Course that provides NZQA Qualifications to the trainee | MEWP operator.  All training courses must cover the requirements of AS2550.10: Cranes, Hoists and Winches – Safe Use – Mobile Elevating Work Platforms and course providers should be able to offer evidence of this. Competency should also be assessed through supervision during the use of the equipment.

We understand that equipment downtime costs money, this is one of the main reasons we work hard to service and maintain our equipment and keep the age of our fleet young. How-ever we understand that from time to time equipment will break down, which is why at Pro Services we take any issues you have with immediate onsite assistance to ensure minimal down time. We aim to have the equipment up and running within two hours and if we’re not able to achieve this, we’ll swap it over to another unit so you can keep working.

We can also take the hassle and stress out of servicing and maintaining your own equipment by placing you on a planned maintenance schedule. We’ll contact you when your equipment needs servicing and coordinate with you so there is minimal down time.
