Genie Safety Minute is intended to facilitate health and safety discussions on the job site.
One of the biggest challenges facing our industry today is how to increase awareness about why safety training is so important.
There is a lot of buzz in the industry swirling around technology and innovation.
Good operating condition and extended life expectancy of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are largely influenced by regular care and maintenance.
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.
In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, is the primary enforcement agency for mobile elevated work platform (MEWP), or commonly known as aerial work platform (AWP), safety on the jobsite.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created in 1970 to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.

Rental applications often include demanding tasks that increase the risk of damage for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) on jobsites.
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 operation of any Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) is subject to certain hazards that can be protected against only by the exercise of intelligence, care and common sense, and not by any device.
From new construction to maintenance and repair work, articulated and telescopic booms put people where they need to be to get the job done.

In the aerial work platform industry, the terms “qualified” and “certified” are often used interchangeably in connection with training for employees who operate or maintain mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).
Training in the aerial industry is very important — a life is at stake each and every time someone gets into a piece of aerial equipment.
