Terex Utilities has updated its The Edge online training course for insulating aerial devices to provide comprehensive, quality operator safety training. 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 provides utility fleet professionals with a cost-effective and efficient training solution for insulating aerial device equipment operators. The course gives Terex the opportunity to supplement its 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 using 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-enabling participants to compare their knowledge going into the test to what they gain during the course.
