The new ANSI Standards for aerial lifts, is A92.22 & A92.24. They are now called Mobile Elevating Work Platforms or MEWP and affect all types of aerial work platforms, even those that had not previously been part of an aerial standard like forklift man-baskets and scissor lifts.These standards are currenty in effect and will be subject to OSHA fines shortly. This training class provides the operator training materials for all MEWP equipment and is the formal training portion of the certification requirement. This class comes with access to the occupant training system to help operators train occupants.
Operators will still need to be evaluated on the lift they are going to operate at the job site or facility, but this class will provide the training documentation and an operator license (both digital and plastic).
Under the new MEWP (Mobile Elevating Work Platform) ANSI guidelines, occupants also known as passengers must have familiarization training and be shown and know how to lower a lift in an emergency if the operator cannot. This class should take about 30 to 45 minutes and will print a certifiate of completion after the test is completed.
Occupants should only have to take this class one time, but may need to be shown the emergency lowering procedures on each different lift type if they are going to ride in different lifts. The training will review basic information about lift safety, fall protection and emergency response options. There is also access to generic job hazard analysis documents (safety plan) and rescue plan documents as per the new standard.
