ANSI is planning to publish the updated A92 suite of standards on Dec. 10, setting the stage to usher in sweeping changes for the design and use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).

The changes to the standards will affect manufacturers, dealers, rental companies, owners, and users of MEWPs. The new standards are more than six years and thousands of man-hours in the making, said Ted Beville, executive director of the Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA), which serves as the standards' secretariat.
