There are five concepts of safe machine operation, all of which are outlined in the machine’s operator’s manual, for Genie® aerial equipment, including mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPS, formerly AWPs) and telehandlers.
There are reasons some aerial work platforms (AWP) is considered a top-tier brand, maintains its value and garners a fairly premium price in the used market.

Since the new ANSI A92 standards were published on December 20th, 2018, one of the most often asked questions I receive is “Do I have to replace the ANSI Manual of Responsibilities on all of my MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Work Platforms) with the newest one?”

The upcoming implementation of the new ANSI A92.22 Safe Use and A92.24 Training Standards for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) in the United States is creating quite a bit of confusion in the industry. T
Genie Safety Minute: Key Upcoming ANSI & CSA Changes
Changes to North American standards (ANSI A92 in the United States and CSA B354 in Canada) are expected to come in 2018 and will create a new “normal” for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), formerly known as aerial work platforms (AWPs), worldwide.
The engines found in today’s newer telehandlers have evolved to reduce pollutants associated with off-road diesel engines.
There are specific hazards associated with operating Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs).
Changes to ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards are coming; we expect to the standards to go into effect in 2018.
In addition to the terminology and language changes in the new ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards, which are projected to go into effect later in 2018, the standards also include several big changes to the equipment itself.
With so much changing in the updated ANSI/CSA standards, it is important to call attention to one key item that every user (identified in the standards as employers) needs to be aware of.
The current ANSI and CSA standards for safe use and training have not been updated for many years (the current ANSI boom, scissor lift and manually propelled standards were last updated in 2006, and CSA standards go back even further).
ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards are about to get a facelift.
Tier 4 final emissions standards have already driven large disruptions in aerial rental, but pending changes to the ANSI A92/CSA B354 standards series* (which covers all North American aerials), be on the lookout for these standards to have an even greater impact in the years to come.
