Edmonton Manlift Ticket - The Elevated Platforms and Manlifts Certification program helps to provide the required training on the work practices, safe operating procedures, rules and regulations regarding the everyday activities for the operators of this equipment.

Aerial platforms and manlifts have become integral and common machinery in industrial settings over the last few decades. These machines provide an easy way to lift employees near what needs to be done on a stable platform apparatus, enabling workers to carry out tasks with greater safety and comfort rather than being perched on top of scaffolding or ladders.
The manlift is like other industrial tools in that they are safe when used properly. Because they lift employees above ground level or floor, accidents can easily take place and this could lead to serious injuries or fatalities for both the manlift operators as well as whoever passerby who might be unlucky enough to be standing underneath.
Manlifts come in different types. Most fit into 1 or 2 categories: the scissor lift, that is capable of moving up and down and the articulating boom lift, which can move both vertically and horizontally.
