What is an EWP (Elevating Work Platform)?

An elevating work platform uses a telescoping device, hinged device, articulated device or any combination of these to raise personnel, equipment or materials to perform work. To operate a boom-type elevating work platform with a boom length of 11m or more, you need a High Risk Work Licence class "WP". 

The length of the boom is the greater of either the:

  • vertical distance from the surface supporting the boom-type elevating work platform to the floor of the platform with the platform extended to its maximum height
  • horizontal distance from the centre point of the boom's rotation to the outer edge of the platform with the platform extended to its maximum distance.

Note: boom-type elevating work platforms less than 11 metres in length are not included in this definition.

There are many different types of elevating work platforms such as:

  • trailer mounted EWP's
  • scissor lifts
  • telescoping boom-type EWP's
  • telescoping knuckle boom-type EWP's
  • vehicle mounted EWP's
  • telehandler with EWP attached
