I just got hired at a company that will have me using mobile access towers in order to do repairs for different systems, and I will need to go through training before I am actually able to start my job. It is mostly for safety, because there is a significant amount of liability involved in putting people up on these towers. As such, it is pertinent to have people who are competent and well training using them. Therefore, I need to find mobile access tower training in the near future, so that I can get started on the job.
I am kind of surprised that the company that hired me does not offer the training that I need, due to the fact that it seems like they really put a lot of their work force on the towers. I guess the training is fairly specialized and it should be done by a third party anyway. Having a third party do the safety training seems like a good way to ensure that safety practices are not ignored for the sake of the bottom line.
I just downloaded a manual that will help me to start learning about safety on these towers, and I have a whole lot of things that I need to start learning. I am going to need to learn the model and manufacturer of the towers we are going to be using, so that I can find specific information about their construction, and the conditions that they can be used in. Information such as maximum loads allowed on the tower, and the sort of surface that the tower can be placed on, are very important to the overall safety of using such a tower. I hope that the training will not last that long, because I am fairly eager to start work.
