Date: 31-10-2019 / Author: kscally

The effective date for the new ANSI A92 suite of standards for MEWPs has been pushed back until March 1, 2020, members of the A92 Main Committee decided at the 2019 ASC A92 Aerial Work Platforms Annual Meeting, held Oct. 27-30 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The suite, which includes the A92.20 design, A92.22 safe use, and A92.24 training standards, was originally set to go into effect in December, but two appeals, partially approved by ANSI this spring, have resulted in the delays.

Though aerial work platforms (AWPs) have managed to reduce the risk that comes with working at heights, improper safety training, or lack of it, can still lead to serious accidents.

The best way to maximize operator safety when working with AWPs is by receiving  training and certification on how to use the equipment in the safest way possible. Safety training for AWP operators will not only increase efficiency and minimize risk, but could also save lives.
