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.

ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards are about to get a facelift.
With increases in OSHA penalties, as well as conducting more inspections to identify violations of its policies and impose the new fines, a question many in the aerial rental market are asking is: How are ANSI standards enforced by OSHA?
With the pending changes to ANSI 92* and CSA B354 standards, there is a need for education in the aerial market about the implications of the new standards, as well as how they will work with current industry regulations.
With Tier 4 emissions standards compliance underway, we now need to turn our attention to the next “big thing” to impact the aerial rental market — pending changes to the ANSI A92/CSA B354 standards series* (which cover all North American aerials).
ANSI (United States) and CSA (Canada) standards have, for almost four decades, provided best practices for safe, reliable access to work at height and have delivered a consistent benchmark for safe machine design in North America.
