When the new ANSI A92 (United States) and CSA B354 (Canada) standards go into effect, they will drive alignment with ISO standards, which impacts the way aerial access equipment is designed, manufactured, maintained and operated globally.
Telehandlers are multi-purpose machines that lift, move and place material.
Scissor lifts are a classification of manlift often found in construction and facility maintenance applications designed to elevate workers and their tools to working heights ranging from 5.9 m (19 ft) to 17.9 (59 ft).
Around the globe, capital cities and large provincial towns are going greener.
As aerial industry standards continue to become more closely aligned worldwide, manufacturers like Genie, who produce scissor lifts (a classification of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) named for their lifting mechanism design — a stack of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like fashion when the platform is raised and lowered) for global markets are taking a closer look at how requirements in these standards impact machine design and safe use.
It pays to be an expert in the equipment industry.
When looking at a machine’s service and repair from that perspective, downtime costs a rental business big time.
Safety is always job one on aerial worksites.
“We think of BIM as a beginning-to-end concept,” says Josh Lyons, architect for The Thrasher Group, an architecture, engineering and field services company, headquartered in Bridgeport, West Virginia, US.

Telescopic and articulating boom lifts rotate, elevate and extend multiple boom sections to help operators access difficult to reach worksites.
Technology is changing the way the world does business.
Power systems for aerial work platforms continue to evolve, just like the machines they drive.
Prior to the introduction of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in the 1970s, construction industry professionals relied almost exclusively on ladders and scaffolding to access major work at height projects.
In order for your customers to get the maximum performance out of a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), it is important that you consider what type of tyre or track is best suited for their worksite environment and needs.
Increased market competition and competitive rental rates are significant challenges for rental companies.
Part of the road, and in particular a series of tight bends leading to Grand'Rivière, a small, isolated fishing village located at the north of Martinique on the foothills of Mount Pelée, was in urgent need of reinforcement.
Over the past few years, it has become increasing difficult for rental companies to find engineers and service technicians with the right experience.
For rental customers and their technical teams, it is essential to have a sufficient level of expertise in order to keep equipment properly maintained and safe to operate.
‘Building the future’ has been in the DNA of Genie since the brand was created 50 years ago.
Focusing on providing actionable information, flexibility and transparency, the new Genie® Lift Connect™ programme marks a significant evolution in the Genie telematics journey.
For more than 50 years, Genie has successively brought to market solutions that focus on operator safety.
Genie is always looking for new ways to add value to its customers’ rental fleets, and with their increased lift capacity (300 kg (660 lb) unrestricted and 454 kg (1,000 lb) restricted), Genie® Xtra Capacity™ (XC™) boom lifts do precisely this — opening the door to new business opportunities.
Funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and managed in cooperation with the Government of Greenland since 1988, Summit Station is a scientific platform dedicated to research related to the polar ice core.
In collaboration with Robbert van de Berg, who is in charge of Pre-Delivery Inspections (PDI) in the UK and at our European Distribution Centre (EDC) in the Netherlands, our Aftermarket Sales Support specialist Patrick van de Geuchte developed the Genie Safety Notices tool.
With online training, technicians can organise their theoretical training in their own time to prepare for practical training.
