1B (Static Boom)

  • Duration:   Minimum 1 Day
  • Valid for:  5 Years
  • Maximum delegates per course:  6

Our 1B Static Boom (commonly known as a Static Cherry Picker) course focuses on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) which can move both vertically and horizontally. These platforms can reach further and, in more directions, than a vertical platform. These static booms can often be found on road-legal vehicles such as a dedicated track-mounted chassis or on a towable trailer attached to a van or truck.

A lot of variation can be found within this category, but all these static booms can only be used and operated whilst stationary. Before these MEWPs can be elevated, they must always have their jacks or stabilisers deployed – same as the MEWPs used in 1A Static Vertical.

What to expect on the course:

  • An overview of the different types of MEWPs.

  • How to inspect and test functions before using a MEWP.

  • How to safely operate a MEWP and understand its limitations.

  • How to plan a route and check your environment before operating a MEWP.

  • How to safely manoeuvre a MEWP whilst at height.

  • How to prepare a MEWP for work

  • Complete theory test

  • A practical session – the basics of safe operation.

  • Practical comprehension testing

  • How to safely use fall arrest equipment

  • Review of course

  • Issue of a logbook

  • Have fun! Our instructors are knowledgeable and engaging – we encourage our delegates to ask as many questions as possible so they can be fully prepared for working safely at height.

  • After successful completion of the course candidates will receive a PAL card with certification

Delegate requirements:

  • Must be at least 16 years of age.

  • Must be medically fit to safely operate equipment.
