SAIA Sets Date, Place for 2015 A92 Aerial Platform Standards Meeting | Construction News

The Scaffold & Access Industry Association has scheduled the 2015 ASC A92 Aerial Platforms Annual Meeting for Harrah's Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., October 25 -28, 2015.

The meeting is open to anyone in the public that has interest in the standards activities that establish consensus rules, guidelines, or characteristics for activities or their results in the aerial platforms industry.

Consensus (industry) standards are voluntarily used by manufactures, dealers, owners, users, and operators of aerial platforms. The purpose of the standards is the prevention of accidents and injuries, as well as establishing criteria for the manufacturers. The standards also aid the manufacturers, dealers, owners, users, and operators of the platforms to understand their various responsibilities.

The A92 consensus body was created to develop safety guidelines for the design, construction, testing, maintenance, inspection, training, use, and operation of elevating and rotating aerial devices, work platforms and vertical devices primarily used to position personnel.
