EWP Yellow Card Training


The EWP Yellow Card is the nationally recognised operator training program. The training program is in accordance with the Elevated Work Platform Association of Australia (EWPAA).

Across all states of Australia there is Occupational Health & Safety regulations in place to protect the health, safety and welfare of the workforce. The Act states that there is a 'duty of care' to ensure workplace safety.

It also goes on to state that:

• Employers must provide information, instructions, training and supervision necessary to ensure the health and safety of employees at work, and

• Employees must co-operate with efforts to comply with OH&S requirements in the workplace.

It is in the best interest it is in the best interests of all parties to have written proof which identifies that the requirements for 'duty of care' have been successfully met.

The Operator Card is a registered ticket issued to operators who have been successfully trained by EWPA accredited trainers in the safe use and operation of various types of elevated work platforms.
