Aerial lifts provide easier and safer access to utility lines and other elevated work sites. The use of aerial lifts is very common but there are many hazards associated with their use. Falls, electrocutions and tip overs are some hazards which operators encounter with use. This training program addresses safety and training requirements based on OSHA’s regulations 1910.67 and 1926.453 and ANSI standard A92.2. Aerial devices include extensible boom aerial devices and articulating boom aerial devices. NOTE: This program does not address scissor lifts.
Aerial lift platforms such as boom lifts, scissor lifts and stock pickers, are called Mobile Elevating Work Platforms or MEWPs. MEWPs can be found in a variety of work settings. They are often used in place of ladders and scaffolds as they allow easier and safer access to places on the worksite especially when working at higher elevations. This training program covers the updated ANSI 92.22 requirements for Safe Use of MEWPs.
MEWPs such as boom lifts, scissor lifts and stock pickers provide easier and safer access to workplaces especially when working at higher elevations. As with any workplace machine, there are risks involved when using MEWPs. This training program was created to assist in understanding the updated ANSI 92.24 MEWP standards detailing who is required to be trained, the type of training required, the content requirements of training, and who is responsible for performing the training.
