Aerial Lift Operator Training

At Alexander Equipment we offer a comprehensive aerial lift operator safety program that will certify your crew to operate all types of aerial lift equipment safely.

This course includes classroom instruction that will help your employees to:

  • Identify and avoid the hazards associated with aerial lift operation.
  • Always perform a pre-operation inspection
  • Always perform a pre-operation function test of all controls and safety related elements
  • Inspect the workplace prior to bringing the machine into position to perform a task
  • Only use the machine as it is intended
In addition to the classroom portion of this training program we will also put participants through a comprehensive hands on familiarization process to ensure that each person is proficient in the operation of the specific make and model of aerial lift equipment they are required to operate on the job in your facility.

Refresher Training Courses

Refresher training is available for operators who have been previously trained and need to renew their wallet cards. The classroom portion reviews basic safety fundamentals and a practical hands on operation review completes the renewal process. New wallet cards are provided upon successful completion.

OSHA also requires Refresher Training if an accident occurs during equipment operation, workplace hazards are discovered or a different type of equipment is used.

Employers are also required to retrain workers who are observed operating an aerial lift improperly.
