Do you need a ticket for a EWP?

Yes, you need a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) to operate a EWP. To obtain a HRWL for EWP, you must complete a nationally recognized training course, pass a practical assessment and pass a medical examination. The training course will cover topics such as safety procedures, operation and maintenance of the equipment, and emergency procedures. Once you have completed the course and passed the assessment, you will be issued with a HRWL, which is commonly referred to as a "ticket" for the EWP. This licence is valid for five years and it can be renewed by passing an assessment and a medical examination again.

Can anyone use a EWP?

The use of a EWP is restricted to individuals who hold a valid High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) for EWP operation. Only those who have completed a nationally recognized training course, passed a practical assessment, and passed a medical examination are legally permitted to operate a EWP.

Employers also have a legal responsibility to ensure that their employees are properly trained and qualified to operate a EWP. They should only allow those who hold a valid HRWL to operate the equipment and should also provide ongoing training and supervision to ensure that the equipment is used safely.

It is important to note that there are some exceptions to this rule, for example, in some cases, an employee who is under direct supervision of a licensed operator may be allowed to operate a EWP, but this depends on the regulations and laws of the specific state or territory.
