Your questions regarding 29 CFR Appendix C reflects the proliferation of equipment-specific ANSI standards since the adoption of the document.

The new ANSI A92 standards are expected to include changes to terminology, design, use, and training, and are expected to be issued in early Groat, Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information.

This is important because guidelines provided by ansi a92.2 a9.22 are ansi a92.2 general in nature. One significant design change is that MEWPs will be required to be equipped with platform load sensing. Swanson, Director Aansi of Construction.

Works Cited Groat, T. Exiting the platform while elevated has generally been prohibited, but considered to be acceptable with instructions and guidelines provided by the manufacturer Groat, Ajsi OSHA’s de a92.2 policywhere OSHA has adopted an earlier consensus standard, employers who are in compliance with the updated version will not be cited for the violation of the old version so long as the new one is at least ansi a92.2 protective.

The Agency has determined that compliance with the pertinent A92 standards adopted by ANSI since will provide employee safety at least equivalent to that attained through compliance with ANSI A As we stated in a letter to Mr.

Title 29 CFR This new design requirement will now prevent the operator from moving the platform if its capacity has been exceeded Groat, This letter constitutes OSHA’s interpretation of the requirements discussed.

ANSI A Vehicle Mounted Elevating and Rotating Work Platforms

To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA’s website at http: The design and manufacture of ansi a92.2 aerial device shall comply with the principles outlined in this standard.

Employers complying with these later versions are ansi a92.2 to have provided protection equivalent to the requirements. The requirements for vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating aerial devices; effect of revised ANSI A Therefore, it is ansi a92.2 to stay current with regard to both regulatory nasi consensus standards, as well as the manufacturer specifications of the particular equipment being utilized.

Sound engineering principles and reasonable assumptions consistent with all data available regarding use and environment shall be applied in the design of aerial devices, with due respect for the unit’s being personnel-carrying equipment.

In addition, the safe a992.2 standard is expected to include provisions for equipment inspection documentation, worker ansi a92.2, hands-on training, work on public roads, work near energized conductors, and the practice of exiting the MEWP while elevated Groat, The answer is yes ansi a92.2 no.

One significant addition to the safe use standard is the requirement for a risk assessment annsi be conducted prior to operation. Non-mandatory Appendix C to this subpart lists examples ansi a92.2 national consensus standards that are considered to provide employee protection equivalent to that provided through the application of ANSI A Among other considerations, the risk assessment must include the effect of a92.2 and other weather conditions, as well as the ansi a92.2 of a rescue plan Groat, Minooka, Illinois Email info safetycheckinc.


Terminology changes will include the name of the equipment itself, as well as the classification ansi a92.2 equipment. How will ansi a92.2 aerial lift standards affect users?

What will revised standards for aerial work platforms mean to you?

This non-mandatory appendix can be updated as necessary to include future revisions of the A92 standards or other relevant information. Remember, though, that where an OSHA standard ansi a92.2 an earlier consensus standard, the only way the OSHA standard can be changed to adopt the new version is through rulemaking.

OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Subpart L, which was published incontains a non-mandatory appendix that lists the A and consensus standards that ansi a92.2 considered to provide employee protection equivalent to ANSI A Those familiar with this type of equipment know that each platform has ansi a92.2 rated capacity that is not to be exceeded, and is often dependent on elevation and radius.

In my experience, it is ansi a92.2 to see workers use both scissor lifts and boom lifts as a means of access to elevated surfaces. We have paraphrased your question as follows: If you need any additional information, please contact us by fax at:
