Common questions:
  1. Are there specific requirements of certification in written form for Safe lifting?
    – Yes, for lifting devices there are such requirements for competence in a sufficient extent and in addition to that – a written drivers permit. The law also requires a written plan and follow up system for all risks. The risk management for severe risks must always be in written form.
  2. Certificates for Hot Works (Heta Arbeten®) and MEWP-training are valid for five years. For how long does a Safe Lifting certificate last?
    – That’s up to your management to decide. If something goes wrong, they can be held accountable for not providing accurate training and safety routines.
    Regarding MEWP’s, it’s the certified training thru the Swedish Rental Association that last five years. The concept of Heta Arbeten® do follow the insurance terms, saying that the training cannot be older than five years.
  3. Will my certificate for Safe Lifting be valid for all lifting devices?
    – The course is what to be required before you start using a machine, and you need a machine introduction to every specific machine and sufficient time to make yourself comfortable using it. If you don’t feel sure enough, read the manual and make sure that you’ll get assistance to work safe.
