Accredited Access Training For All Machines
HiReach Training provides the highest quality training, by industry experts on state of the art plant and equipment.
Whether you require a licence for a towable cherry picker, 135ft knuckle boom or forklift, our fully equipped training facility offers a range of courses that can get you the ticket you need. With multiple training rooms set up to cater for individual course requirements, our training facility also includes a realistic simulated working warehouse environment. This enables trainees to utilise plant and equipment, simulating 'real world' outcomes, instilling confidence and promoting correct working practices.

EWP Training For Maximum Operator Safety
EWP and safety courses include:

  • Elevated work platform training over 11m (boom lift training) – this course covers the functions required to operate boom type elevating work platforms (boom length 11 metres or more), including routine checks, planning work, planning elevation, setting up and dismantling EWP and more. The EWP course has been developed in accordance with the licensing and assessment requirements of NOHSC:1006 [2001].
  • Yellow Card elevated work platform training (boom lift training and scissor lift training under 11m). A Trained Operator Card (Yellow Card) is available for four types of EWP in this course – scissor lifts, trailer mounted boom lifts, self-propelled boom lifts and vertical lifts. You can receive training and accreditation in the safe use of one or more.
  • Working Safely at Heights - covers best practices of identifying the work requirements, work procedures and instructions for the task; accessing and installing equipment; performing work at heights; and cleaning up the work area.

Other training courses available include:

Verification of Competency (VOC)
HiReach Training can assess competency in the operation of High Risk plant and equipment, to fulfill pre-employment competency checks and constractual arrangments.

Operator Safety

Your total safety while working at heights is integral to everything we do here at HiReach. This translates into uncompromising standards and procedures for EWP inspection and contract servicing, and the highest level of service and maintenance for our entire EWP hire range. We also make accredited EWP training available, to ensure you operate the best machines, with the most comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge possible.

Serviced To Be Safer
As a minimum, our entire EWP hire fleet receives quarterly, annual and 10 year inspections to ensure optimum efficiency and exceptional safety. All machines also receive an off-hire inspection - regardless of whether they've been out a day, or an hour - to ensure they remain in tip top condition and you only ever receive the most reliable and safe EWPs in South East Queensland.

We'd rather go the extra mile and over-service our machines, than have even a single EWP in our fleet not functioning at optimum capacity or performing with complete reliability. Learn more about our rigorous EWP servicing methodologies and how they keep you safe while in the air.

If you have any questions about operator safety, EWP training or are seeking advice on how best to solve your next access challenge, contact us or call 1300 661 500. We service the greater South East Queensland region, whether you're in Brisbane, on the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast.
