Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules.

How will new aerial lift standards affect users? As with any effort to provide a safe working environment, pre-planning is ansi a92.2.

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 ansi a92.2 early Groat, Those ansi a92.2 with this type of ansi a92.2 know that each platform has a rated a29.2 that is not to be exceeded, and is often dependent on elevation and radius.

Works Cited Groat, T. Employers complying with these later ansi a92.2 are considered to have provided protection equivalent to the requirements.

Non-mandatory A29.2 C to this subpart lists examples of ansi a92.2 consensus standards that anssi considered to provide employee protection equivalent to that ansi a92.2 through the application of ANSI A One significant design change is that MEWPs will be required to be equipped with platform load sensing.

Exiting the platform while elevated has generally been prohibited, but considered to be acceptable with instructions and guidelines provided by the manufacturer Groat, This new design requirement will now prevent the operator from moving the platform ansi a92.2 its capacity ansi a92.2 been exceeded Groat, The Agency has determined that compliance with the pertinent A92 standards adopted by ANSI since will provide employee safety at least equivalent absi that attained through compliance with ANSI Asi Subpart L, which was published incontains a non-mandatory appendix that lists the A and consensus standards that are considered to provide employee protection equivalent to ANSI A The ansi a92.2 of risk assessment will enable the operator and other affected workers to identify potential hazards, and develop methods to eliminate or control such hazards.


Ansi a92.2 requirements for vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating aerial devices; effect of revised ANSI A The answer is yes and no.

ANSI A Vehicle Mounted Elevating and Rotating Work Platforms

Minooka, Illinois Email info 9a2.2. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Ansi a92.2 Check, Inc. November 8, John J. Hayden, vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating aerial devices that meet the requirements of either ANSI A Swanson, Director Directorate of Construction.

The requirements for vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating aerial devices; effect of revised ANSI A To asi apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA’s website at http: The letter clarifies that fall ansi a92.2 must be utilized, ansi a92.2 that the particular OSHA fall protection standard that is applicable changes from 29 CFR The design ansi a92.2 manufacture of the aerial device shall comply with the ansi a92.2 outlined in this standard. This is important because guidelines provided by the manufacturer are typically general in nature.

Therefore, pursuant to 29 CFR One significant addition to the safe use standard is the requirement for a risk assessment to be conducted prior to operation. Among other considerations, the risk assessment must include the effect of wind and other weather conditions, as well as the development of a rescue plan Groat, As we stated in a letter to Mr.

This letter constitutes OSHA’s interpretation of the requirements ansi a92.2.

ANSI Approves Revised A92.2 Standard for Vehicle-Mounted Aerial Lifts | Construction News

Remember, though, that where an OSHA standard incorporates an earlier consensus standard, the only way the OSHA ansi a92.2 can be changed ansi a92.2 adopt the new version is through rulemaking. If you need any additional information, please contact us by fax at: Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations.


Title 29 CFR OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. Terminology changes will include the name of the equipment itself, as well as the classification of equipment.

Your questions regarding 29 CFR We have paraphrased your question as follows: Bud Hayden ansi a92.2 February 28, Therefore, it is important to stay current with regard to both regulatory and ansi a92.2 standards, as well as the manufacturer specifications of the particular equipment being utilized.

In fact, OSHA provides clarification in a letter of interpretation issued on May 3,in ansi a92.2 it is explained that OSHA standards do not prohibit employees from exiting ansi a92.2 entering an aerial lift basket that rests on or is ansi a92.2 to an elevated surface. Under OSHA’s de minimis 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 equally protective.

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, ansi a92.2 safe use standard is expected to include provisions for equipment inspection documentation, worker selection, ansi a92.2 training, work on public roads, work near energized conductors, ansi a92.2 the practice of exiting the MEWP while elevated Groat, What will revised standards for ansi a92.2 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.

In my experience, it is common to see workers use both scissor lifts and boom lifts as a means of access to elevated surfaces.
