New ANSI Lift Standards Webinar - January 29 @ 1:00 pm

Join Eric Stalmon, VP of Safety and Training for the Marr Companies as he breaks down the new ANSI A92.22 lift standards including updates on the latest training, machine designs, and best practices for operation.
The new ANSI Standards are effective March, 2020 are you ready?
ANSI standards released in late 2018 which were originally to become effective on December 10, 2019 will now be delayed until March 1, 2020.
The changes include renaming Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs) to Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs). Rather than being classified by the equipment type, machines are now broken up by Groups, then sub-divided into Types.
In addition, the new standards place greater responsibility on the equipment user regardless of whether they are a large maintenance operation or a small business that rents a scissor lift, boom lift, etc. ANSI Standard A92.22 requires all MEWP users to develop a risk assessment and site safety plan, which must be shared with everyone on the work site. ANSI Standard A92.94 now requires training for occupants and supervisors of aerial equipment.
The requirements do not have the force of law as enforced by OSHA, but do present a liability issue for contractors who choose not to follow the most up to date safety standards.
