Boom type elevating work platform - WP
To operate a boom type elevating platform you need a WP high risk work licence.
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.
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: elevated work platforms less than 11 metres in length are not included in this definition.
