Safety Advisor, Siganto & Stacey (Air Conditioning & Mechanical Services)

I attended Elevated Work Platform training (presented by John Parker) along with approximately fourteen other staff members from our company. This training exceeded my expectations. John’s training style was very professional and practical. John constantly engaged the class by providing real life and realistic scenarios and this facilitated a very educational and productive discussion. Many training courses are often overloaded with technical jargon and information that isn’t relevant to the task at hand. The course presented by John was not an average run-of-the-mill training session. John is obviously committed and passionate about delivering effective training and his approach and delivery methods get to the heart of the matter; he put things into perspective and provided insight to everyone (including some experienced plant operators) about relevant hazards and risks associated with operating an EWP. I was particularly impressed with the focus on emergency/rescue; the use of ground controls and emergency lowering procedures; optimal positioning of EWP; properly assessing the ground/surface conditions, etc. I’ve spoken to others who attended this training and they all made positive comments. Thank you John for providing such a high calibre training session that will undoubtedly have a positive impact on those who participated.
