REDMOND, Wash.– Terex AWP, driven by the Genie brand, has updated its products and parts sold in California to meet new requirements of the state’s Proposition 65 (Prop 65) that go in effect Aug. 30.
Under Prop 65, businesses that sell new or used products and parts into California are required to warn about potential chemical hazards, including chemicals known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm in the products/parts they purchase, in their homes, workplaces, or that are released into the environment.
Terex AWP updated its product and packaging labeling; the operator, parts, service and maintenance manuals for all Terex and Genie products; and its e-commerce website gogenielift.com with appropriate warnings and notifications for all new and used products and parts sold into California.
“The No. 1 priority on any aerial jobsite should be to promote a safe workplace for both the operators and the people around them,” said Jason Berry, Genie senior product safety manager, Terex AWP. “Ultimately, industry standards are the basis upon which aerial work platforms are designed, maintained, and operated. All entities involved in the safety chain (manufacturer, dealer, owner, user, operator) need to be knowledgeable regarding industry standards, such as Prop 65, and to comply with them to help keep jobsites safe.”
