EWP Escape Recertification

UETTDRRF08B Perform Elevated Work Platform (EWP) Controlled Descent Escape*


This half day (4 hour) course has been designed for those who have been previously certified for EWP Escape and simply require an updated certification. The course is based on the mandatory requirements for self-rescue from a raised EWP and how these requirements apply in the context of energy transmission & distribution or rail work functions, and identifies the performance of Elevated Work Platform (EWP) controlled descent escape procedures.

As with all of Safety Access & Rescue’s courses, the EWP Escape Recertification Course is contextualized to the student’s occupational situation and will allow time to cover specific questions about your needs. If you require initial training in EWP Escape, please visit our EWP escape course.

Please note that access to an EWP is required.
