What is a Yellow Card?

Launched on 11 May 2015 by the Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia (EWPA), the “EWP Operator Licence – Yellow Card program” is designed to ensure that the holder has been trained in the safe use and operation of various types of elevated work platforms. It has been developed in line with and is mapped directly to Nationally Recognised Training (NRT).


Why Do I Need Yellow Card Training?

The Act aims to protect the health, safety and welfare of people at work. It clearly states that there is a duty of care to ensure workplace safety for the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU). Verbal instruction in this case is not considered as an effective method of training as it lacks written proof of training evidence. The EWP Operator Training Program or ‘Yellow Card’ is the result of the EWPA helping the industry to comply with the Acts.
