Common questions:

  1. For how long will your training certificate persist?
    – It’s up to your employer, but when it comes to such dangerous circumstances as work platforms it’s the safest to go thru a quality secured training thru the Swedish Rental Association, (Liftutbildningsrådet – LUR [LÄNK]). A training thru LUR is valid for five years, and after that it’s time to do the training over again.
  2. Is there demands by law to  have a written proof of competence on MEWP/EWP?
    – Yes, according to the provision AFS 2006:6, section 29. And in addition, a written drivers permit is always required, together with a machine introduction.
  3. Does Byggsäkerhet perform repetition training, a shorter version of the basic training?
    – No, the training doesn’t become shorter, but Byggsäkerhet will lower the price some for those who can show a valid MEWP-certificate provided thru LUR, not older than five years. Participants with previous training are beneficial to mix with beginners and together we can perform more efficient training.
  4. What kind of more training is needed after a MEWP-training?
    – In direct connection to work platform training, you must have fall protection and rescue/evacuation training. The employer must have thorough routines for the systematic environment work, including many other competence requirements. Contact Byggsäkerhet for advice.
  5. Are there practical moments included in the course?
    Yes, in a gated area. There will as well be a short brief on fall risks. We use fall protection gear after in introduction to the equipment and usage.
