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).
A huge thank you to everyone that participated in the ANSI A29/CSA B354 Ask Me Anything with the Genie Team!
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.
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.
