Save Time and Money While Satisfying All OSHA Requirements
Have you ever thought about the convenience and cost savings that come with having an in-house safety consultant? With CertifyMeOnline.net’s training, it’s fast, easy and affordable to have OSHA expertise whenever and wherever you need it. It’s what you’ll receive when you enroll one or more of your employees in CMO’s Aerial Lift Train the Trainer Program.
There’s no need to waste time or money renting a venue and hiring a “safety consultant”. You could be training your aerial work platform operators in-house through CMO’s aerial lift train the trainer certification program. Here’s how:
CMO’s online course was developed from an initiative to identify and document Best Practices for Aerial Work Platform (AWP) trainers and operators. It was created with input from the Scaffold Industry Association (SIA) members, along with aerial lift rental companies, manufacturers, associations, educators, regulators, users and operators. Much of the content was adapted from SIA’s February 2010.Statement of Best Practices of General Training and Familiarization for Aerial Work Platform Equipment.
CMO’s aerial work platform Train the Trainer course provides everything needed to have an in-house certified aerial lift safety expert available at all times. Some advantages of our AWP Train the Trainer course include reduced costs, OSHA safety guideline instructions and the convenience of always having an internal safety consultant on hand.
Your company will also be better prepared for OSHA audits, have improved safety protocols in place and will provide a safer workplace for aerial lift operators and others working on or near AWP equipment. CMO’s AWP Train the Trainer class that gives you an in-house OSHA approved aerial lift safety expert is a wise investment.
The Purpose of the Initiative
The objective of the Best Practices of AWP Trainers and Operators Initiative is to increase the safe use and risk management of AWP equipment throughout the industry. The initiative results from inconsistencies in what constitutes general AWP training and familiarization and how each is being delivered throughout the industry. Here are some of the Initiative’s training objectives:
- ✓ Educate industry members on recognized and supported standards, including the American National Standards Institute/Scaffold Industry Association (ANSI/SIA) A92 Standards and OSHA regulations
- ✓ Establish best practices and minimum general training guidelines for AWP equipment operators and owners
- ✓ Point out the differences between actual training and familiarization
- ✓ Clarify minimum qualifications for trainers
Benefits of CMO’s Aerial Lift Train the Trainer Certification
- ✓ Avoid the cost and disruption of third party in-person training
- ✓ Schedule training when it’s the most convenient for your business and employees
- ✓ Peace of mind that comes with knowing the training complies with the latest safety regulations
- ✓ Fall Protection Train the Trainer education is included in CMO’s AWP Train the Trainer program
- ✓ Examples of how real life workplace situations involving AWPs impact safety are included in our AWP Train the Trainer course
- ✓ Reduced workplace accidents, injuries and fatalities

What’s Included in Our Train the Trainer Online Courses?

Fall Protection Train the Trainer Training
This module will familiarize students with personal fall protection standards, including risk assessment and fall prevention. CMO’s Fall Protection Train the Trainer is an ideal way to obtain OSHA-compliant AWP certification. No other online safety class can match the content and cost-savings advantage of CMO training.
OSHA regulations specify the fall restraint or fall arrest measures to be taken while working from a boom-supported aerial lift. Here are the three primary topics this Fall Protection training module will cover:
- 1. Fall restraint or fall arrest safety measures to be taken while working from a boom-supported aerial lift
- 2. Risk assessment considerations
- 3. How to implement a Fall Protection System
The following OSHA regulations specify the requirements for fall restraint or fall arrest while working in a boom-supported aerial lift.
Employers are responsible for providing PFP equipment and ensuring that it is used properly.
- – Ultimately, the desired end result of this initiative is to increase awareness of best practices, clarify responsibilities and address the safe use of equipment.
- – As a qualified trainer, these will be your objectives too.
The Responsibility of Employers to Provide Training
It’s the responsibility of the employer to both provide workers with personal fall protection equipment and to ensure that it’s used properly. Employers also need to be aware of AWP training requirements and where to access approved training materials. After providing the training, the employer is required to monitor operators’ work to ensure the uses, applications and operation of AWP equipment conforms with ANSI standards. Although AWP equipment is safe when properly used, access to the right training materials will make operating aerial lift equipment even safer.
It’s the responsibility of AWP equipment owners and users to train their operators. Current ANSI/SIA A92 Standards outline the subject matter to be included in AWP equipment training, but they don’t establish specific requirements for qualifying AWP operators or trainers. Section 8.5.1 of ANSI/SIA A92 Standards lists what should be included in operator training, and Section 8.5.3 deals with what equipment familiarization should include. Neither, however, establishes a minimum standard for training AWP operators. CMO’s training and certification addresses these issues.
