In the best weather conditions, some of our Elb assemblers recently did their hoist driving licenses on the farm. We take the issue of occupational safety very seriously and attach great importance to our employees being instructed in the equipment, machines and vehicles to be operated.
Translated in the paragraph language, this means that according to BGV A1 (Principles of Prevention), BGR 500 (Chapter 2.10 Operating Lifting Platforms) and BGG / GUV-G 966 (Training and commissioning of aerial work platform operators), the use of work platform personnel requires appropriate instruction and commissioning.
Although work platforms are basically a very safe work equipment, so less accident-prone, such as: ladders, ropes or scaffolding. Nevertheless, with lifting platforms, a lot has to be considered, mediated by a user ID for working platforms - colloquially called "lifting platform driving license". The mediated contents include i.a. the device technology before commissioning, safe operation, driving in basic position and in working position, raising / lowering / turning / swiveling and safe working on the platform.
