Asked Questions

Who needs to take Boom Lift Training in BC?

In British Columbia, boom lift training is a mandatory requirement for individuals operating boom lifts as part of their job responsibilities. This obligation is not only a matter of best practices, but is also mandated by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). The OHSA enforces strict regulations to ensure workplace safety, and boom lift certification is an integral component of compliance. It is a legal requirement designed to safeguard the well-being of workers and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries when working at heights.

What is the difference between a boom lift and an aerial lift?

While both scissor lifts and boom lifts fall under the category of aerial lifts, it’s important to note that boom lifts offer significantly more versatility. This enhanced versatility arises from their hydraulic arm support, which enables them to navigate obstacles with ease, as well as reach greater heights.

Does a Boom Lift Operator Certificate expire in BC?

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a wallet card, valid for 3 years, indicating that they have met the training requirements mandated in the province of British Columbia. Participants are required to get re-certified before the 3-year expiration date on their card.

Annual review of this training is strongly recommended and participants are welcome to come back and practice as much as they need to feel comfortable at no additional charge – please call us for more details.
