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.
A telehandler is one of the most frequently used tools, and most versatile pieces of equipment on a jobsite.
At Genie, our number one priority is to provide safe, productive aerial work platforms for our customers.
Performing equipment inspections is essential for ensuring the safety and productivity of any piece of aerial work platform equipment.

Changes to ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards are coming; we expect to the standards to go into effect in 2020.
Ideal for outdoor construction and industrial applications, Genie® engine-powered articulating Z™ booms provide lifting versatility with a combination of up, out and over positioning capabilities and outreach that’s second to none.
In addition to the terminology and language changes in the new ANSI A92 and CSA B354 standards, which are projected to go into effect in 2020, the standards also include several big changes to the equipment itself.
For the first time in 25 years, fines levied by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will increase, under a provision in the new budget deal President Obama signed into law on November 2, 2015.
With the pending changes to the ANSI A92 and CSA B354 estimated to go into effect in 2020, it is important for you to start preparing your business and your customers now for what will be different.
