Aerial work platform (AWP) course (cherrypicker)

Taking a AWP course ensures that operating a AWP can be done safely and competently. This is important, because operating an aerial work platform naturally involves risks. Because work is carried out at (great) heights, it is crucial that this is done with a view to personal safety and that of the environment. The correct knowledge of working with an aerial work platform contributes to creating a safer working environment and prevents damage and accidents.
