Lineman safety: Terex Utilities has updated its The Edge online training course for insulating aerial devices to provide the most comprehensive, quality operator safety training available. The Edge is a web-based course, allowing Terex customers to study the safe operation of aerial devices at each individual’s own pace, when it is convenient for them.

“The Edge course for aerial devices is designed to provide utility fleet professionals with an innovative, cost-effective and efficient training solution for insulating aerial device equipment operators,” said Jason Julius, technical support and training development, Terex Utilities. “This course gives Terex the opportunity to supplement our customers’ in-house training efforts, providing them with a crucial piece of the training puzzle. It is comparable to attending in-person training with the convenience for participants of completing it as their schedules allow and the cost-saving benefits of utilizing an online tool compared to hiring an instructor.”

The Edge course, “Insulating Aerial Device Operator Safety Training,” includes all aspects for the safe operation of an aerial device, including general usage guidelines, pre-operation, during operation, post-operation, hand signals and electrical hazards. New to this version of The Edge is a pre-test that all users take before beginning the training. According to Julius, this enables participants to compare their knowledge going into the test to what they gain during the course. This enhanced course also includes in-depth, up-to-date information on OSHA and ANSI standards, as well as video tutorials and demonstrations.

The new Insulating Aerial Device Operator Safety Training course costs $150 per person and takes participants approximately eight hours to complete the entire course, including taking the pre-test and final test. Once the final test is passed, participants will receive a certificate of completion and a wallet card to share with their employers and keep for their records.
