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?”
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 mobile elevating work platform (MEWPs) industry the terms “certified” and “qualified” are often used interchangeably in connection with employees who maintain this type of equipment.
Pre-owned mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are increasingly popular in rental fleets.
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).
Your aerial equipment fleet is a huge investment for your rental company, so it’s important that your service technicians are properly trained to perform the necessary maintenance and repair work needed to keep your investment up and running.
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.
Here are some quick reminders of the value of scheduled maintenance to keep your mobile elevating work platforms (MEWP) fleet up and running in peak condition.
One of the ways a growing rental company shows success is by expanding to new and different locations.
It’s no secret, preventive maintenance keeps rental equipment, like telehandlers, running at peak efficiency, day in and day out.
Whether you’re a start-up or an established rental business, if you are thinking of getting into the aerial rental market – equipment that includes boom lifts, scissor lifts and telehandlers – there are more things to make decisions about than just what equipment to order.
One of the most common questions we receive at Genie is: “Will I be certified to work on/inspect/operate Genie® Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) upon successful completion of a Genie technical service or operator training course?”
A “Super Boom” was the nickname first given to Genie® boom lifts, breaking through the industry's vertical height ceiling.
From a training and safety perspective, one of the biggest challenges the industry sees right now is increasing awareness about why safety training is so important.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get in the training department at Genie is “what is the different between ‘familiarization’ and ‘general training’ for aerial work platforms?”
Every day, your customers’ inboxes are flooded with newsletters, and it might be hard for your customers to differentiate your rental store’s effort from the competition’s.
The number one priority on any aerial jobsite should be to promote a safe workplace for both the operators and the equipment.
